My roomate made this one night (she is not an avid cooker...) and it turned out great! So I have made this for my boyfriend, friends, family and they ALL ask for the recipe and ask me to make it again! I don't like that it's so high in fat (lotsa butter)...but what can ya do? It's worth it! The mushrooms turn out sooo good that even people who hate mushrooms will eat them! If you are a big lemon lover this is for you. The more I make this, the more fresh squeezed lemon juice I add. The more I add, the better it gets it seems. (Within reason!) Also, the first time I made this I got rid of the butter I browned the chicken in and melted new butter before I added the rest of the ingredients and it just was not as good as keeping the same butter the whole time!

This was very good. Very moist chicken and so easy to make. I was surprised it wasn't as lemony as expected..perhaps using fresh lemon juice would punch up the lemon flavor more. Nevertheless, this was a lovely meal that I would be happy to serve to guests and is easy enough to prepare any time. Thanks:)

This was a nice and quick weeknight meal. My husband and daughter didn't like it but I thought it was great. I guess I'm the only one in my family that likes lemon chicken. I'll make it again when I'm on my own for dinner one night. Next time I might cut the sugar just a bit. Thanks for posting.

Well, I can see why your Dad pestered you for years to find this recipe. It is just delicious! The chicken comes out so moist that you can cut it with a fork. I loved the slight taste of the lemon. It isn't overpowering at all. I made as posted except I drained the mushrooms from the butter to lower the fat. I served it with saffron rice and steamed broccoli. This is a keeper and thanks for posting it. :)

WOW!!!!!!! This is possibly the EASIEST and the BEST chicken I have ever cooked! My family agrees. They loved it! The only thing I did differently is that I only used 1/2 the butter and used chicken cutlets instead of whole boneless breast. I did not get enough glaze to put over rice, but we didn't have rice. If I want to serve the glaze over rice I will add the butter! I will definitely be adding this to our regular repertoire!

THANK YOU!!! This is a favorite. It is so delicious, and moist and quick to prepare and easy ingredients. I prepared the flour, salt, pepper and chicken ahead of time, kept the chicken in the bag in the refrigerador and then when I got home, I cooked the chicken and it only took about 15 minutes. I served it with brown rice and it was a hit with my whole family. The only change I made was I used margarine instead of butter...this is an amazing chicken.

I thought this was very good. I have made other versions of lemon chicken and sometimes they tend to be too tart. This had a nice sweetness to it, while still keeping the lemony flavor. Will definetly make again-thanks!!
