This is a really good recipe. I made as per recipe with no changes, and the only problem I had....was not enough sauce. The family loved the sauce and wanted more so..... Next time I will double the sauce ingredients. But this is one great dish! The family really enjoyed this Jan. A great meal that is tasty and v ery esy with little effort that makes for a fantsatic dinner.

So easy to make.So good to eat. My Husband kept going on about how subtle the flavour was,how moist the chicken. I served with Asparagus spears and mashed potatos & veg. My DH said this was a keeper. (Thats high praise from him) Leah

my family was home tonight, some for the first time in 6 days= they all loved this! i usually make a lighter lemon chicken, but the addition of the cream and the grated parmegiano reggiano was wonderful.i added some buttermilk to my heavy cream to make it a full cup, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. i will be making this again, thanks jan
