Very good recipe!! I used cilantro instead of the dill and chives. Very versatile recipe! Use whatever fresh herbs you have on hand!*tip* add the lime juice at the end and the lime flavor will be stronger!

This is a fast and easy recipe for a weeknight meal. I felt it was a little bland so I will add more lime and chives next time and maybe a spice blend to the chicken rather than just salt and pepper.

Fast and easy recipe for chicken. It was good, but I couldn't taste the lime in the sauce. Next time I will add more.

This recipe is great and often asked for by my husband. The only change I make sometimes is that he prefers lemon over lime and I don't always include the chives since they aren't always something I keep on hand at home. Delicious and so easy to make.

In the mood for 'crisp' so pounded the chicken, then dipped in Egg Beaters followed by panko crumbs with garlic & herb seasoning prior to cooking. My husband loves all things saucy, so added some white wine to the sauce ingredients to make it go further. A big hit!

Hubby made this recipe for dinner tonight. Chicken was so tender and with the sauce nice and moist. So much flavor. This one is indeed a keeper!!!
