    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a wonderful lower-fat restaurant-quality dish that is easy to make, I also like to add in a few tablespoons of capers and cook with the lemon glaze if you are a lover of capers then add them in as it really adds to the flavour of this dish --- this lemon sauce is not a heavy creamy sauce which is what makes this dish lower in fat, it is more like a glaze that soaks into the chicken, and I would strongly suggest to double or even triple the glaze I most always do, and please be certain to use only dry breadcrumbs as fresh will not stick to the chicken as well --- this is *very* good!

      Really, really tasty. I implemented some of the (minor) tweaks suggested, all of which I recommend: I used panko crumbs, doubled the sauce, thickened with some cornstarch & water, and added capers. Definitely easy to make but notwithstanding how easy it was, I'd say it's company worthy. I'm a big fan of this recipe.

      Lovely! I used panko instead of breadcrumbs and loved the crunch that it gave. Took your advice and doubled the sauce and added 2 Tbsp capers, the capers added a lot to this dish and I'm very glad I doubled the glaze. Thanks for another healthier alternative Kittencal, I didn't miss the butter in this at all as so many similar versions have.

      This was amazing ! I tripled the sauce as suggested I also baked the chicken instead of frying it. I didn't have bread crumbs so I used ritz crackers it turned out so moist and yummy !! Thanks for the recipe !
