    Baby Chevelle's Note:

    Recipe comes from local paper. Meyer lemons are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. They are sweeter than a lemon and are called a true lemon they have a pure, true lemon flavor.Look for them in your local supermarket. You can freeze the juice for future use. I think you will love them. They do have a distictive flavor, they have no bitter aftertaste, and make great lemonade, be sure to use less sugar.

      I made this dish exactly as directed.... I exceeded my expectations so much! I boiled up some thin spaghetti and served the chicken and sauce over the top of it. Oh my goodness, it was sooo delish! Thank you very much for sharing!
