      This dish is awesome, I make this all of the time and I am always amazed at how wonderful it come out! I have modified it a bit - I generally take out the lemons after I put the chicken in...I find they get a bit too tart. I use salted butter and skip the salt and I add equal parts flour/water to the francese sauce to thicken it up. Try it, you will not be disappointed!

      Overall, a great dish - tasty, easy to make, and economical. I have to agree with the reviewer who found the sauce a little too lemony, though. Maybe we both had extra tart lemons, but I will plan to use only the lemon juice next time. This time, I used a bit more butter to bring down the tartness.
