Absolutely delicious!! I used skinless chicken breasts and apple juice instead of the wine and added 1 tablespoon of butter instead of the two spoons in the recipe. The sauce was beautiful and the lemon slices were just right. We had this with mashed potatoes and brocolli. We all enjoyed it. Thanks for posting, Tgirl.

My family enjoyed these. I doubled on the ingredients, and left out the capers, and it was delicious. It will be a monthly meal in our house.

Made chicken version. The recipe worked great as printed and was delicious.The balance of all of the ingredients is right on. Recipe does not say what to do with the chicken broth, but I added it with the wine. Served with jasmine rice. I also seasoned the chicken before dusting with flour, otherwise s&p won't stick.
