I tripled the lemon and broth...quadrupled the garlic, added a little salt and pepper and it was very nice. I had a little extra rosemary and flour so I added a little bit to cold water and thickened up the lemon sauce a bit then tossed about half of my sauce in the pasta before serving the chicken on top of the pasta with a splash of sauce over the top. Served with peas. Very nice meal! Thanks for sharing

This was really good. Definitely needs more garlic and lemon like other reviewers have commented. And the sauce was on the skimpy side, so next time I will increase the liquid amounts even more.

Really wonderful flavor in this dish! I definitely perked it up with salt, pepper, butter, more garlic and extra chicken broth. Served it over linguine to raves around the table. Winner!
