This recipe comes from my cousin and his wife in Ann Arbor. I cut down the amount of oil in the original recipe. Recipe calls for 1 1b chicken breast, to feed 4. However, most chicken breasts have gone all Pam Anderson..hard to find 4/1lb. I usually just pound out the 3/package so they will cook evenly, cut into 6 or more pieces. I usually serve this over couscous that has been cooked in chicken broth and then mixed with fresh herbs from the garden. Steamed brocolli with a sesame/soy/balsamic glaze is a good side.
