    History Teacher's Note:

    I found this recipe in Southern Living's Ultimate Quick & Easy Cookbook. My family LOVES it. It is very simple and quick, but it tastes delicious. I serve it with crisp baby green beans and various kinds of rice. In the past, I have added minced garlic and chopped parsley to the last cooking step (when you reduce the broth to make a light sauce). Enjoy!

      Thank you for sharing your recipe History Teacher. What a great meal we had, thank you so much. It was awesome, so much flavor, my picky dh get saying mmmm. Seriously this is a great recipe, it was quick and really easy to make, ready before you knew it. I served it with boiled potatoes and corn niblets for a real treat. The chicken was delicious, crispy, tender and juicy while the gravey was out of this world good. Loved the salty lemon flavor, we poured it over everything on our plates. This is a recipe that I am putting in my best of 2012 cookbook.

      This was my first attempt at any thing like this and I think it went pretty well. I did pound the chicken so that it would cook quickly. I served it with a rice pilaf that I sort of made up and some steamed veggies. It was pretty good. The sauce seemed VERY lemony though. It may be a personal preferance, but I think I would have enjoyed it more without the sauce or with a much lighter lemon flavor in the sauce. It was very tasty all in all. Thank you so much for sharing this easy recipe.

      My boyfriend made this last night and we both agreed that it was the best chicken that we have a eaten in a long time! He put a bunch of mushrooms in and made a thicker gravy with the extra juices. Along with mashed potatoes and green beans this was an excellent dinner. We will make this again. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
