    Another lemony based creation from Sandra Lee's sumptuous collection of recipes. This one is simple, tasty, and when paired up with Lemon Chicken Soup,Lemon Garlic Broccoli, Lemon Pudding Brulee with Blueberries, and a Lemon Cream Martini you have an elegant spread that everyone will think you slaved over - without adding to your non-existent grey hairs!! Lemon haters, need not apply!! ;) Yummy!

      The chicken smelled awesome cooking, and tasted moist, tender and oh so delicious! I also could not find the lemon herb chicken sauce so I added some herbs de provence to the butter and lemon juice. Cooking for one I just prepared one chicken breast. Cooked this in a toaster oven and when it was done, I poured the marinade into a small dipping bowl. WoW good. I will be making this recipe again and recommend anyone who likes chicken to try this. Thanks Mommy Diva and Fight like a Girl! Hugs

      This chicken is scrumptious even though I messed it up! I could not find the lemon sauce listed here so I tried to make this anyway with a spice mix. It was great! I can just imagine how much better it would be with the sauce! Sorry Mommy Diva that I flubbed it but it is still WONDERFUL!

      This was gorgeous! That's really the only word I can use. I was lazy and used whole chicken breasts, baking them upside down in the sauce so they would be moist. I flipped the chicken over and put them under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp the skin up before serving. Once the skin was nice and crispy brown I poured a good spoon full of the lemony butter sauce over the top before serving. Easy, moist and flavorful! Great simple chicken recipe!!!
