    This chicken was amazing! I couldn't stop eating it. It's like orange chicken but with lemon instead and I can't wait to make it again. Rave reviews over here!

    This was easy and delicious. I think next time I will pound the breasts to flatten and double the sauce. A winner in my house. Even my grandson. who is a lemon chicken lover, eats this recipe with no coaching from me.
