  • Very Good
    This is very good. I used skim Lactaid milk instead of half and half added pepper on one side of the breasts. Although it was very flavorful, I will marinate the chicken in McCormicks garlic and white wine chicken scaloppine next time and add more basil. Thank you for the wonderful recipe! - 7/24/12
