Chicken Breast Lombardy~Robynne

Robynne Glenn


I have been making this chicken dish for several years and have shared it with family and friends many times. I found this recipe in my Southern Living Cookbook Classics.

Disclaimer: I have always used recipes as a guide and use my instincts and experience to alter or omit ingredients as I cook. Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way. Trust your experience and adjust to your personal taste~Robynne
