Sage-Dusted Chicken Recipe

I use this "express" recipe for family meals and last-minute dinner parties. It's always met with rave reviews. The golden-brown chicken looks scrumptious served over spinach. —Veronica Callaghan, Glastonbury, Connecticut
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

"My husband and son thought this had flavor galore--I did as well! So easy to execute, with relatively few ingredients and yet so richly flavored. I used half & half instead of whipping cream, since I already had that in the fridge and it worked well. I wish we had had more sauce than what the recipe rendered--it was so good to dip slices of french bread into it! This is a great recipe for the working woman, like myself, who wants home-cooked food that is not processed convenience stuff, but cannot expend too much energy at the end of the day."

"Very quick and tasty. While I made the sauce I kept the chicken breasts in a low oven. I sprinkled shredded parmesan on top. I'll definitely make this again."
