"WHEN I WAS newly married, I was very interested in cooking, so I started to collect recipes. My new sister-in-law's mother sent me her family's favorite chicken recipe, and I knew it was destined to be a favorite in our household. The delicate flavor of lemon makes this dish great."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 16, 2014

Mmmm.. mmm..Good! I generally always try to stick to a recipe 100% the first time and then go from there. The only thing I changed was I used 1 tsp. of salt instead of 2. I also used bottled lemon juice. This recipe was absolutely delicious, and a wonderful flavour. I will definitely make this again and again. I highly recommend this! My family loved it!

This is my husband's favorite recipe. It's also my go-to company recipe- and I'm always asked for a copy of the recipe to send home with our guests. It's super easy and delicious.

MY REVIEW

I wonder if there is a misprint in the recipe, because there was way too much tart and too little sweetness. I used fresh-squeezed lemon juice and maybe I should have used the bottled as it is not as tart, but this sauce did not taste good. Recipes should clarify with things like lemon juice whether fresh is called for or not, as it makes a difference. My son also said it was too salty. Maybe someone else could tweak the ingredients, but I'm too busy to bother and I have a lot of other really good chicken recipes.
