      Super recipe!. Simple and delicious. I didn't use the oven either, but a stovetop 'dutch oven' instead. Kept the lid on after sauteeing the chicken, turning occassionally at medium flame.

      Excellent! After sauteing the chicken (step 3), I left it in the pot to simmer with some extra lemon juice and some water with the bouillon until cooked through (saved me the trouble of using the oven and cleaning up extra pans). I then removed the chicken pieces, placed them in a container with a lid (so that they don't dry out), and then followed on from step 8. I also added twice the amount of cream, as we like our meals very 'liquidy'.
