      This recipe was delicious with a subtle hint of lemon. I made the recipe exactly as written and served it over egg noodles with a salad and garlic bread. Thanks for a great recipe!

      I had this recipe in my cookbook,and decided to make it for dinner last night.My taste buds were ready,but to my dismay,when I went to the freezer,I didn't have chicken breasts!I was determined I WAS going to fix this recipe.I used boneless chicken thighs,and the results were wonderful. My Dh is a bigger fan of lemon than me-so when I fix next time WITH chicken breasts,I think I will use ony 2 tablespoons of lemon.He didn't know there was lemon in the dish, so I think I can make him happy and me too. Thanks for sharing your recipe,Cher.:0)

      I had wondered if this would actually be very lemony and it had the perfect subtle hint of lemon just as Dreamgoddess said. I made it just as the directions said and it is excellent!!!!
