    Lassie's Note:

    I adapted this recipe from one I found in a South Beach diet cookbook. The original recipe is with broiled salmon, I prefer it with chicken, but still prepare it both ways. It's fast, easy, and so yummy. Tastes a bit like a creamy chicken picatta.

      I took the advice of another reviewer and halved the amount of lemon juice. Turned out perfect. Thanks for posting the recipe!
