    This was really good but I added capers to it. That made it so good.

    I liked the simplicity of this recipe. Only issue I had was waiting for the broth/cornstarch mixture to thicken up in the pan. Consequently I cooked the sauce longer than the directions stated and the lemon slices cooking longer made the sauce almost inedible. I salvaged it by added about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of sugar. Next time I won't add the slices of lemon until the sauce is how I like it. It's my mistake not this recipe. I will definitely try again.

    This was ok...I felt it was missing something, but not sure what. I will tweak it a little with some additional spices to see if that does the trick.

    This is so good!! It has alot flavor from the lemon. I used low sodium chicken broth and it worked great!! Very light and healthy.
    I tagged this one for the Healthy Choice ABC Tag Game. This was easy, flavorful and healthy. I served it with roasted fingerling potatoes and mixed steamed vegetables. I followed the directions exactly but did lightly dust my cutlets with a little whole wheat flour. Next time, and there will be a next time, I would double the sauce. It was so delicious! This recipe would work just as well with chicken cutlets.
