Elegant and delicious. 2/22/09 After reading some reviews and problem of too much liquid I would suggest decreasing to perhaps 1 1/2 cups or use the pasta water which has the starch from the pasta that would provide a thickener. Also, be sure all of the flour was used to coat the chicken; that could also be a part of the problem Thanks for the all the input reviewers!

Very tasty! I did have a problem with my parmesan cheese not sticking to the chicken, used a real fresh grated one, not the 'fake' one from the can but I just added a sprinkle on top when serving. Like others have said before, make sure you use all the flour and the sauce thickens nicely. I did add extra lemon, just a personal preference. Even my 4 yr old twins loved it!!!

This dish came together in a flash. I really enjoyed the flavors of the chicken, lemon and garlic with a hint of the white wine. I added some minched garlic to the chicken as it was browning. I will be making this dish often. Thanks for sharing Vicki in CT. Made for July, 2009 Aussie/NZ Swap. Update: This recipe is in my Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook.

It was good. I didn't have angel hair or white wine so I used spagetti and white wine vinegar. That still turned out well. the flavor of the chicken is excellent and it was a hit for the family.
