  1. Loved it! Super easy to make and great lemon flavor!
  2. Oh, so good! I used 2 large chicken breasts for 4 of us and it was just right. I wasn't paying enough attention to the recipe and cooked the breasts and removed them, then added the broth and let the sauce reduce while I was plating dinner. It turned out great, even before I spooned the sauce over top! Made for Zaar Stars. Thanks Sydney Mike! :)
  3. excllent! Just right for our taste! BUT One fresh breast was more then enough for the 2 of us! I remembered that when in the states, Kate used frozen breasts, and they were tiny in comparision. I beat the breast, and it was about the size of my electric frypan!!!! so I figured that would do :) did the sauce as written, and it was wonderful! SERVED WITH BROCOLI, which went very well with the sauce. made for aussie swap, oct 09
