This dish is very tasty and easy to make. I did not flambe` it and it was still great.

Simple yet tasty chicken. I liked the blend of brandy and lemon flavor, which perked up this chicken and made it a pretty golden color..

Delicious and simple to make. The sauce was light and the flavors blended well. Definitely "company quality" taste.
