    Made these chicken breasts for some unexpected company & they were a big hit! Everyone liked the taste of lemon & the nuts [I doubled the amount of nuts]! I served it with a brown rice & green pea mix! Thanks for a keeper of a recipe!

    This was an excellent weeknight meal that was so easy to put together. I loved the combination of lemon and pistachios. The chicken was very moist and I loved the sauce, with the lemon zest. Yum! Thanks, Tasha Leah.
