This dish is delish. A very good friend of mine gave me this recipe years ago and I still make it and think of him. His name was Bruce Baird. "Chief Lifeguard, Laguna Beach, CA."

Wonderful, flavorful and juicy chicken. I bought some whole chicken breasts with ribs on sale the other day and wasn't sure what to do with them. This recipe tasted great and wasn't overpowering. (I invited my mother over who doesn't like strong flavors). I did use Panko breadcrumbs that I seasoned up with some Italian seasonings. Originally I only used the 1/4 lb of butter but ended up adding another 2-3 tbs at the end. Thank you so much.

This was a very tasty and moist chicken that my family really enjoyed. I doubled the chicken, egg and breadcrumbs. Will cut back on the butter next time too. Thanks Queen !

This is delish! I used 1/2 the butter and didn`t miss the rest of it. You can cut the bread crumbs back to 3/4 of a cup for I had plenty. I used the whole lemon and added the zest as well. Very Very good and tender and easy to make!
