This recipe is SO impressive and not hard at all. Its a one skillet kind of gourmet meal. Perfect to impress friends, family, or a special someone with. I like to ask my butcher to take out the backbone and flatten the chicken. If he’s nice he won’t charge you and even if he does… it’s worth the extra money!
