    Chef Patience's Note:

    This dish sounds wonderful! IMHO. I’m planning to give it a try soon. This dish may be frozen for as long as 6 weeks. Freeze Chicken pieces individually with sauce. To reheat it, thaw. Then put a small amount of water in the bottom of the skillet, placing chicken inside. Cover and steam until heated through. From Food Everyday Issue 1.

      I reduced this recipe to 1/4. I used 1/2 tsp thyme and 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes and I replaced the water with white wine. I also used sliced green olives since I prefer their flavour. This is really good but I think that next time I would slice the lemon more thickly so that it would be easier to remove upon serving. Made for ZWT4 Family Picks

      This was nice but the next time I will put less lemon for my taste. I used only 2 huge chicken breasts as there is just 2 of us.This was made for ZWT4 for the Chic Chefs

      This was chosen for ZWT, I added in some dried oregano and increased the chili pepper flakes to 3 teaspoons, I increased the salt and pepper and reduced the chicken broth slightly. thank you for posting! Kitten:)
