"This was a good recipe, I used a whole lemon instead and it was bit strong so i would use less next time."

"I wasn't very impressed by this recipe. It wasn't bad, but just kind of blah. The chicken was bland and the flour coating remained soggy in the amount of cooking time listed. Also, boneless skinless chicken barely has any "drippings" after baking, since it is so lean, so there wasn't much to add to make the gravy. So-so."
