    A family favorite. A nice change of pace from jarred spaghetti sauce.

      This was a good start, but I took the chicken out after it was cooked and then added the lemon juice and garlic to the pan and I toned the lemon down with about a 1/3 cup chicken broth and I also added parsley too. Once that was all mixed and simmering I added the chicken back in to coat it with the sauce and finished according to the recipe. Soo much better!

      Good but not enough sauce for us. I think I would add more sauce and spice it up with some red pepper.
