Wonderful! I only used 2 breasts but made the entire sauce recipe. This was quick and easy but wonderful flavor. We will be having this one often. Served with Parmesan Spinach Cakes.

Just terrific. For once I didn't change a thing and it was perfect as written. Twas enjoyed by adults & teens alike and I suspect even wee ones would love this dish. I went with ChicagoRN's idea of doubling the sauce...absolutely the right idea.

This was really, really good and not very difficult to make. I doubled the sauce, then added about 1/4 cup of heavy cream to it to make a lemon-cream sauce...devine! Will definitely be making this again!
