    I actually pounded three chicken breasts and extended the servings to 8. Left out the salt and the second pan spraying to reduce sodium and calories. Deglazed the pan with white wine added a little low sodium chicken stock and cooked the veggies in that. Very good with nice eye appeal. - 9/29/10

    I tried this chicken tonight I did not have mushrooms so I used a small zuchinni and green onions, had to go with what I had, I also used tomatoes , My husband said it was the best. He does not like white meat because it is dry. so that was a plus. Thanks I will make it again - 1/25/10

    This is a very tasty and simple meal, but next time I'll sprinkle the cayenne pepper on separately. It seemed to have seasoned some chicken more than the others when mixing all the seasonings together. Overall, I plan on making this many more times in the future! Thank you. - 5/4/12

    THE BEST EVER. It's basically Alice Spring Chicken from Outback minus the bacon. I used fat free honey mustard as a dipping sauce but be careful because that has a lot of carbs. This will become a family regular so excellent! And a one pan meal! - 6/8/11
