lovely easy recipe. I used lemon juice and left out the peel, (had hassles with that before with family) dinner was late, so I added extra water to the mix and popper it in the oven, and it was great. Very forgiving recipe, and a good one for starter cooks. made for Aussie swap nov 09

So good! I felt doubtful about the flavor combination at first, but the flavors blended beautifully. I used homemade vegetable stock instead of the chicken stock and chicken cutlets instead of the whole chicken. I put the cutlets in a loaf pan and pressed them down to cover them completely with the onions, sauce, etc.--they came out so moist and flavorful!

This was delicious ~ we loved the combination of the lemon and garlic, plus the red onion and honey. Everything melded together very well to produce a very tasty dish. I served with Lemon Orzo Primavera and it was a wonderful combination. Thanks Lauralie41 for sharing! Made for ZWT5 ~ AUSTRALIA !
