The chicken is on, except panko is a better crumb to use. I brought home some sauce from the restaurant once and it hardened like a soft butter overnight. So I don't think this sauce is accurate.....and the sauce also has herbs in it. Fresh Thyme.

I made this recipe tonight. I tried a cup of half & half and a cup of heavy cream for the sauce. I don't think I got the right thickness though. I pounded the chicken breasts after cutting them in half, made them real tender. I used Panko with Italian Seasoning, but I didn't really taste the lemon zest- maybe the seasoning over powered it. I made some angel hair pasta. Put the chicken over a little pasta and added the sauce on top. It was good. Going to try it again for some friends.

My husband and I loved this! I've never had the dish at Cheesecake Factory so I can't compare but this was excellent. Served with broccoli instead of mashed potatoes.

Excellent recipe! I used Panko breadcrumbs to give it a little more crispness. Also added fresh dill to the sauce along with a little more broth to make it less gravy like. Overall very pleased with this dish, especially considering the ease and little time required to prepare.

This is my absolute favorite dish at Cheesecake Factory! I also have to agree this tastes even better than their version! I took the advice I'd read and added parsley into the sauce! MY OH MY!! Have made it three times in the past month for husband and I! :)

I made this recipe for my parents and I'd have to say they were beyond amazed. We all agreed that it tasted better than The Cheesecake Factory version!!! I didnt do anything different to the chicken recipe except used "italian herb" breadcrumbs and fresh grated asiago cheese (instead of Parm.) In the lemon sauce, we used parsely, and a squirt of dijon mustard. I mean JUST a squirt....We served with white white, wild rice, and fresh steamed zucchini squash. Was absolutly to DIE for. VERY easy to make, no complications. I plan on using the left over sauce and breadcrumbs for Talipa tomorrow!

This is by far one of our favorite recipes! It is soooo yummy. We always get it at the cheesecake factory when we go! We decided we like this sauce better because it tastes a hint more lemony, which just adds to the flavor! We decided to cut down on some of the fat in the recipe-- after we coat the chicken we stick it in the oven and bake on 350 for 1 hour. We cover until the last ten minutes then it has a little time to crisp up!
We love to make with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed asparagus! Mmmm. Thanks for a great recipe MeliBug!!!

I tried this at the Cheesecake factory and liked it so much that I did a websearch that brought me to this recipe in Recipezaar. I have prepared this now a half dozen times and it still Rocks. I didn't care much for boneless chicken breasts until I tried this recipe. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.

I used to work at the cheesecake factory and I think this is very close. The first time I made it I swapped out one of the cups of heavy cream for evaporated milk and it was fantastic!! The second time I used light cream and evaporated milk and the sauce looked grainy and a little thin. Guess the calories make it! But I really think this is a great recipe.
