This concept is great. I added garlic, used apple juice in place of white wine and sauteed the mushrooms before putting them over the chicken. I also didn't have lemon zest, so I just doubled the lemon juice and the lemon flavor was very subtle. I will definitely remember to use lemon zest next time. The sauce was a little thin for me - I will also add a little flour next time while it's in the pan to thicken it up just a bit and maybe add some parmesan cheese to the sauce as well.
Lovely combination of lemon and Parmesan! I increased the Parmesan to thicken it up. Thanks CaliforniaJan for sharing.
No wonder Abby loves this! This is a very simple and delicious dish. Easy to fix too. Thanks CaliforniaJan for a nice keeper. Congrats on your week 7 win in the Football Pool.
