    It turned out incredibly delicious. Browning the sides on the stove was a great idea. The chicken breasts were tender and juicy. I used it to make a chicken Caesar salad. I highly recommend.

    My kids now ask for chicken breast! I usually make this with a chopped salad and some noodles. It’s amazingly delicious and we are often fighting over the last bites of chicken. I guess I should be making larger batches!

    It was really good and my family loves this chicken. I had to make a few adjustments to it because of the size of the chicken breast I had. If you have a bigger size I suggest adding a bit more than recommended and cooking it for a bit longer. Other than that it's amazing and really juicy!

    Delicious recipe! I never trust my oven since it is a cheap apartment one, so I only put the chicken in for 15 minutes. When I took it out it actually went over 165 degrees a fair amount. It was still delicious and I will make it again!

    This was good. I think there was something missing, but haven’t figured it out yet. I will make it again but will season it differently.

    Amazing! A bit dry but definitely very good! Although it may seem strange but me and my family liked it even more the second day! I recommend adding lemon while servering. Also don’t take the amount of butter for granted, you really need that much. I recommend this recipe to anyone who is interested

    Very easy, quick, and delicious. I ran out of paprika and swapped it for a little sprinkle of chili powder and it still came out great
