    PanNan's Note:

    This is modified from an old magazine recipe. We've been making this version for years. We prefer the lighter sauce now and often I double the sauce ingredients to make more.

      We eat out quite often, so I find it difficult to prepare dishes at home that compare. My husband and teenage son loved this recipe. I will be making it again!

      This recipe is wonderful. Not only is the taste superb, but it is easy to prepare. I chose to served the pasta on a large platter, placing the chicken on top. I then placed lemon wedges around the edges adding the parsley here and there. Next time I will double the sauce. Hmmm Good!!!

      Really delicious! My whole family loved it - not a speck was left! I made approximately double the sauce amount, using extra lemon juice and some chicken broth. We thought the lemon-y-ness was just perfect, and although I don't care for wine, it really completes the dish. I also thickened the sauce a bit with some cornstarch/water. I will definitely make this again - it's a keeper! Made for ZWT7.
