I love this recipe -- I did a search for this exact recipe as my mother used to make it for us when we were growing up. It's perfect! I actually used it when I was making my first meal for my first boyfriend in college 15 years ago:) He was wowed and it was so, so simple. Thanks for putting this up!

Sounds simple and tasty, I'll try it soon. Why "Chicken Simon and Garfunkel"? Should we listen to S & G while preparing and eating?
