Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Boneless, skinless chicken breast halves vary considerably in size. For this recipe, select ones that are about 5 ounces each. Be sure that they are all the same size so they cook in the same amount of time.
  • tip 2
    Serve this Italian-style dish with steamed green beans and warm breadsticks. Italian gelato and biscotti for dessert keep with the Italian theme.
