Got this recipe from an aunt. Not sure where she got it but it is good, easy, cheap, and healthy!

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!
