    Rainberry Blues's Note:

    I got this recipe from a borrowed cookbook (I can't remember the name of it) a few years ago. I've since adapted it a little bit, but not too much. It has become one of my tried-and-true recipes. I usually serve it with rice pilaf and a tossed salad, but once I served it with new potatoes and crusty rolls, and that was good too.

      This was execellent! The carrots added the tiniest crunch. The lemon was not overpowering like in most dishes. My BF who is trying to NOT eat meat broke down and ate a huge breast just because they smelled so good! I served this with a wild rice pilaf as suggested. Great recipe! UPDATE...Made again and added about 1/2 cup of white wine. Also EXCELLENT!

      WOW! This was great! I served this over Sage and Parmesan Rice (#203770) and used fresh sage from my herb garden. The taste was incredible - we just couldn't get enough! I will definitely make this again - Thanks so much for this now family favorite!

      This was good. The overwhelming flavor was lemon. I thought the flavor would be more complex...
