    Babs7's Note:

    My sister Cathy gave me this recipe to try - I'm glad I did because it's a keeper. The lemon and herbs give the chicken a delicious flavor and the baking in broth helps to keep the chicken moist. *Allow at least an hour to marinate* Preparation time includes 1 hour for marinating.

      I followed the instructions except that I used crushed garlic croutons for the breadcrumbs and I marinated the chicken for about 3 hours. The flavors were good together and I liked the addition of capers, but this turned out a little dry for me. To do this again, I think I would double the lemon. It's such a refreshing flavor.
