  1. Looking forward to trying this recipe.

  2. Does it have to be olive oil to cook the chicken? Or can it be regular vegetable oil?

  3. Can the sauce be made ahead? I want to prepare this dish for our large family gathering, but only have a limited time between when we’ll return home from church & when I need to serve the food.

  4. Just had to say… Yum yum yum!
    This had always been my favorite at “The Factory” and now it’s my favorite at home. Thanks so much.

  5. One of my favorites from the Cheesecake Factory. Great recipe! The whole family loved it.
