"This recipe originally came from the Olive Garden website but I have changed a few of the steps after trial and error in my home chicken. We have a thing for lemony chicken in my house and this is one of the favorites."
Serving Size: 1 (192 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"This was very delicious. The sauce was very lemon-y which matched beautifully with the chicken breast. I thickened the sauce with corn starch after removing the breasts and the sauce was wonderful on rice. A really nice balance of flavours with the lemon, wine, and parsley! The key was browning the breasts and removing before quite cooked through and then finishing the cooking in the sauce, so that they were just barely cooked and therefore moist and flavourful!"
"this wonderfully lemony chicken was so tender you could easily cut it with just a fork. i had six half breasts so i doubled the sauce. i put the extra sauce on our rice and fresh asparagus, too. it was fairly quick to cook, but it took me longer than 15 minutes to prep. getting the chix washed, trimmed and pounded took some time. i couldn't prep the sauce while the chix browned because browning went quickly and needed my attention. next time, i'll prep it all early in the day. we all really enjoyed this fresh dish! "
"This recipe was delicious, very delicate perfect flavor. Given the healthful way it is prepared I will definitely make it again. I used weight watchers recipe builder to figure out that a serving is only 8 points. Not bad at all!"
"This was really good. Tender and delicious. I used chicken tenders instead of whole breasts (fit in pan easier!). I did double the sauce. I had to use ReaLemon, so added a little extra since I didn't have lemon rind. Probably didn't need to do that. Also added some capers at the end. Fresh and yummy."
"Delicious! The sauce is so good - I can see why several reviewers suggest doubling it! Thanks."
"We really love this recipe. I've been making it for years; I'm not sure how I overlooked reviewing it! My kids--even the three-year-old--like it, and it's easy to adapt to make in advance, too. To make it in the crockpot, I don't dredge the chicken in flour (too soggy if you do) and add the fresh parsley at the end so it will retain a fresh color and flavor. I just brown the chicken--not cooking it all the way through-- and make the sauce up until the parsley, then put it in the crockpot on low for 4 hours. Nice for when you have company and don't want to be fussing much in the kitchen instead of visiting."
"I found this to be OK. It wasn't bad, but I was a little unimpressed. I haven't eaten the original dish at Olive Garden, so maybe that's why I didn't enjoy it more. It's a good idea for a change-of-pace dinner, though."
"I made this last night, exactly as is, and truly loved it. It was perfect..thank you so much."
"This was a very easy recipe to put together and had a nice flavor,but not may favorite lemon chicken recipe. We also found that it did make much sauce. Thanks"
"SO GOOD. So easy and oh so good. I didn't change a thing and was very happy with this dish."
"My DH & Family liked it, I thought it wasn't lemony enough and a little salty.. Which I thought was weird since I don't put TONS of salt on things... Oh well, the salt was probably my fault though! lol It was easy to make & like I said the family liked it, so thanks for the recipe!"
"This was tasty; but it is not quite as good as other Lemon Chicken dishes I have prepared. I think the onion over powered the otherwise delicate lemon sauce. Next time I would reduce the green onion, or possibly eliminate them all together. I kept a couple of the chicken breasts out of the sauce and served them plain to my kids; who asked for more. It was a nice, lightly breaded chicken tender for them."
"Thanks for a delicious recipe! The chicken was so moist and the sauce had a wonderful, light lemon flavor. I served it over pasta and with steamed broccoli."
"Very nice light,lemon flavor. I used Beringer chenin blanc for the wine and it was very good. Also added some capers, served with whole wheat pasta and steamed broccoli. Great meal. Thanks!"
"Thanks for this wonderful recipe which wife and I enjoyed this evening. Will be a repeat performer on our table!"
"this was a great recipe didn't change a thing i have made it many times i have also used veal it is a keeper"
"This was a yummy dish. I do not rave about it, but I will make it again in the future."
"I give it 4 and a half stars. Sauce was outstanding and very tasty. The chicken needed a little something else though."
"Made it tonight for wife and father-in-law... they loved it. Easy to make and the aroma was delicious. I added some heavy cream to sauce before putting the chicken back in. C'mon... we can all use a little more fat and calories for the holidays!!"
