I could eat this until it comes out my ears. It is that delicious! I love the lemon and cheese with the garlic. I also love the ease of making this simple dish with great flavor!

I saw this and had to make it to go with our chicken cutlets. We both loved it and I have been asked to have it again, so I am adding it to my menu plan!
