Not only are the flavors in this recipe are delicious, but simple and easy to prepare too. I like to butterfly my chicken breasts and then cut them in half. That gives me a nice even thickness. It's not to thick, and not to thin. It works perfect for us. But, if you like a thicker piece of breast meat, leave the breast whole.
