chciken and mozzarella, Member SandyLeaSmith

I made this last night and my husband loved it. It's a difinite do-over. The only thing I'll do different next time, is to cut down the saute time for the chicken. It didn't need to cook, in the skillet for 5 mins. on each side and then spend so much time in the oven. Otherwise, GREAT! After a long day, I really look forward to taking time to create a nice meal for us, while also enjoying a glass of wine. Doesn't get much better than that. Sandy
