Reviews for Cheese-Topped Lemon Chicken Breasts
"Love this recipe, except without the cheese. I make it frequently."
"I love this recipe! Very easy & quick to make!! Made it for my family at home and than had a weekend to make it for my cousin and they all loved it as well!!"
"I tried this recipe and it was so delicious!!!"
"quick & easy to make. I used cheddar instead of Colby. The sauce is a little strong so next time I will just serve it with less sauce."
"A definite favourite at our house! I didn't have any Colby cheese on hand when I made it the first time so I used cheddar instead. I've made this many times and it's always good!"
"I love this recipe, but like it with extra sauce, over rice. Also prefer it without the cheese.CC"
