This is my favorite recipe to make for guests in the summer. It is light and flavorful! We used to have a lemon tree at our old home, and the trick was to find as many things to use up lemons as possible.

This was a very tasty recipe. I was too lazy to debone the chicken breasts I had on hand, so I breaded them bone in, sauteed them for about 4 minutes per side then finished them in a 375 degree oven until they reached 175 degrees. I also used about 5T of fresh basil instead of the dried, and cooked the sauce a bit longer which required me to add about 1/3 cup of water before serving. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting.
