    Delicious!

    Kelly from North Shore, MA

    This recipe is similiar to what I'm use to making. However, instead of creamer I use heavy cream and some left over white wine that I've had in the fridge from the night before. I also add garlic and pepper in the sauce and cook brocolli on the side to add in before serving. On occasion I'll also bread the chicken and bake in the oven whie i'm making the sauce. Cream sauce is one of my favorite dishes and enjoy every drop of it....

    Quick, Easy, Yummy

    Kelly from Madison, MS

    We all really enjoyed this recipe. I substituted evaporated milk for the creamer. I served it over angel hair pasta. Very yummy! I do think it needs more sauce, so I will double the sauce recipe next time.

    Better Than The First Time

    The (less than) Occational Cook from Los Angeles

    This is the seconde time I have made this and I forgot how easy it is. I used a little extra lemon and it brought out more ZING. My 2.5 yr old helped me mix the sauce and she liked it too!!

    Really Yummy!

    Jennifer from Salem, OR

    This is a very good dish! I made just a couple of modifications... first, I sauteed the chicken in olive oil instead of butter, to make it a bit more healthful. I also added mushrooms (8-10 sliced) and garlic (about 1/2 tsp.), which I added when the chicken was almost finish cooking.

    Easier than I expected

    The (less than) Occational Cook from los angeles, ca

    I don't cook very often and this was REALLY easy and my wife was VERY impressed. She even said, "I'm gonna talk about this." and "if you made this for our friends, they wouldn't beleive you made it." I rate this quick and delicious. Maybe next time I'll add capers.

    Amazing!

    audrey from Houston

    I loved, loved , loved this! Seasoned just right, the sauce alone is a keeper! Didn't have white wine so I used red wine---skipped the boullion cubes for chicken broth... and added no lemon zest. Still came out superb! We'll be having this one again!

    Wow!

    Jeanne from Milwaukee, WI

    I substituted a pinot goir for the dry white wine. All I can say is this was truly deeeelicious. It practically melted in my mouth. I would highly recommend noodles or rice with this because the sauce is not all that thick. Enjoy!

    Very Yummy!!!

    New Mommy! from Phoenix, Arizona

    This was great! My husband and I love any type of cream sauce and lemon. When I saw this, we had to try it. It turned out great. Highly recommended. I served the chicken, cut into strips, over egg noodle with veges on the side.

    Sauteed Chicken Breasts in Fresh Lemon Cream Sauce

    Sherelda from Chicago, IL

    Whoooo weeeee this was absolutely deeeelicious. This was made for me by my bestfriend and I was floored. She made extra sauce to go with the noodles the second time she made it. No lemon zest was used.

    Very Flavorful!

    chris from CA

    This recipe has tons of flavor - but you must like lemon!

    Must LOVE lemon

    angee from dallas, tx

    I was a bit skeptical of this recipe, but it turned out pretty good. The lemon flavor was a little over the top for me, but overall it was tasty. I will make this again, but will use less lemon peel than suggested.
