This is a tasty dish than can serve as a main dish with a nice soup or salad. Very economical. I made this a lot when I first moved out of my parents house.

Pretty darn good! I added a little lemon juice to my chicken while cooking it. Delicious.

I made this quite a while ago, when I first started cooking, and have continued since. It's simplicity made for a good starting point for me. It's delicious as is, though I've tried using shrimp, garlic instead of lemon (on request from a non-Lemon fan), and adding crushed red pepper to the butter mixture. Always great! Thanxs for this!
