Reviews for Peppered Chicken Breasts
"Made this tonight and loved the sauce. I left out the onion. It wasn't needed. The sauce was fantastic without it. Little to much pepper, but that's a to each, his own thing. I will make this again, but with less pepper."
"Have made this over and over. I never seem to have white grape juice on hand so I substitute white cooking wine and also don't use quite as much pepper, personal preference. Always tastes great. Son-in-law thinks its super."
"Husband and I both love this and I made if for a family gathering. Everyone who tried it liked it and my son is a very finicky eater. Will fix again and again."
"I and my husband LOVED this. I used white wine in lieu of grape juice. It was pepper perfect. Thanks"
"I haven't made this before, but it sounds amazing! I love pepper so it sounds great! I'd probably leave out the white grape juice in the gravy though."
