We loved this. I followed your recipe except I added a sliced lemon to the sauce mixture. Delicious. We served this with buttered noodles and a veggie. Thank you for sharing.

We liked the flavors in this. The only thing I didn't like was all the chicken broth added to the pan at the end; we would have liked it better without so much extra juice. The breading on the chicken would have been a nicer texture that way.
