I had used the recipe, but misplaced it, and was glad to find it here! My family loves it, and I love it since I always have everything I need for this on hand (chicken breasts in the freezer, everything else in the panty!) I use reconstituted lemon juice, and dehydrated lemon peel (found in the spice aisle in my local supermarket.) When I don't have a can of chicken broth, I use buillion, which is not quite as nice as the broth but still gives plenty of flavor.

The paprika gives the chicken a great color, and adds a depth of flavor to the dish that I haven't had in any of the other lemon chicken recipes I've tried. I love the flavor of the rice from the lemon juice and chicken juices! Best of all, everyone in the family likes this dish, so I don't hear any complaints when I serve it!

Very nice and perfectly suited to a tasty, quick, weeknight dinner. The taste is bright and fresh, and the family ate it up. The timing was a perfect 25 minutes for the rice to be perfect, but the chicken was just slightly over-cooked. I'll make this again.
