Review This Recipe
Quick and Yummy!
This was delicious!! Used chicken tenders and dinner was on the table in 20 minutes!!
Served this over angel hair pasta with a nice green salad. Definitely a keeper!!
The Reviews are Right!
Well, The reviews are right, I made this dish for my bf and his friend. They both loved it, it came out great! A must make..
I found this recipe on this website about 1 year ago. I have been making it faithfully ever since. I usually serve over white rice or whole wheat pasta. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing! (It really impresses company too!)
My boyfriend and I are pretty picky in what we eat. This was wonderful! We chopped up the chicken and served it over rice. A wonderful combonation. Definetly worth trying!
Both myself and finicky hubby loved this recipe, only instead of serving it as chicken breasts, I cubed the chicken served it over linguine. Hubby's not a big fan of pasta, but even ate the leftovers of this one for lunch the next day.
My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. It was very easy to make and tasted great! I will make this again and it's an attractive dish to serve to guests.
Wow, this recipe turned out far better than I imagined. I invited a few friends over one evening and was looking for something different. I didn't have any bullion cubes so I substituted a few sprinkles from a chicken seasoning pack from oodles of noodles and that was such a yummy compliment to the lemon. I have gained more confidence in having an even bigger dinner party next time!! Thanks so much!!
A great way to serve chicken
If you're tired of the same old chicken try this recipe! While we found it a bit too "lemony" we'll definitely make it again, just cutting back on the lemon a bit. The sauce was dark, which we didn't expect, but the taste is wonderful. This is a keeper!
I was excited to try this recipe due to the reviews, but my husband and I were so disappointed in the results. It was dry and very bland, etc. We discarded the leftovers.
This recipe was absolutely wonderful! It didn't take very long to prepare. I wouldn't change a thing about it. It is definitely a keeper.
Anyone that loves tangy lemon dishes cannot pass this one up. I even added extra lemon juice and lemon peel. My husband and I thought it was delicious!
This recipe sure comes in handy. Its delicious and not time consuming.
Quick and Easy
This recipe was quick and easy. Next time I would double the sauce. I added mushrooms and 3 cloves of garlic.
I was impressed, it came out better than I thought. My whole family liked it... even my picky husband. I'll definitly make it again.
This recipe is by far one of the best that I have ever found. Both my parents work, so I often make dinner to help them out. This is easy, delicious...and when my brother came home from college he told me that I should be a chef. If you don't have whipping cream, half and half also works. I had this with egg noodles, Thanks again!!!!!!
