We love chicken and this is one of my favorite ways to prepare it. This is so delicious! The kids ate right along with us so I did 1 1/2 X the recipe to make plenty.

Fine dining meal that is easy peasy! Though I have made this before it's always nice to try new recipes and this one shot to the top to be made over and over!

I can't believe how delicious this was considering how easy it is to make. We loved the lemony sauce and flavor it gave the chicken. I served it over fettuccine and the sauce really gave that a nice flavor too. Double the sauce so you have plenty for your pasta!

I can't believe how fast this is to make. It tastes so good you would think it took hours. I will have this many times again and enjoy it every time!

We loved this easy delicious chicken! I served it over linguine with the sauce on top and sopped up the sauce with some good Italian bread. Yummy!
