Delicious! I subbed liquid egg whites for butter and olive oil for canola oil. I used 4 oz chicken breasts and it calculates to 320 calories and 9 grams of fat! Will definately be making this again and again!!!

I eliminated the butter and used egg whites instead. I also fried the chicken in olive oil. It turned out fantastic. Super easy recipe and very yummy!
