This is Jacques Pepin's recipe. The resulting chicken is moist, soft, and flavorful. Use a large non-stick frying pan. If cilantro is too strong for your taste, substitute with parsley or sage. If we dont have cilantro, we prefer finely chopped sage or parsley for this recipe. In Europe, cilantro is coriander.
