"This was very easy to make, however neither my husband nor I cared for it. We did like the sauce ( used FF sour cream) but thought the chicken lacked flavor. I won't be making this again. :("

"<p>Delicious! chicken was moist, tender and full of flavor. The lemon called for was just enough, not overwhelming. In fact, the sauce was great with the chicken and enhanced the nuttly flavor of the brown rice. This recipe is a keeper.</p>"

"The chicken was so moist and tender, we could cut it with a fork. I used plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream for the sauce. It came out wonderful!"

"This was absolutely amazing! At first I doubted the sauce, but it was wonderful too. The chicken has such a strong flavor :) The only thing I would suggest is less cooking time because my chicken was a little on the dry side. My husband and I still enjoyed it very much though!!!"

"My husband and I loved this recipe! I had so much flavor! Of course, the sauce looked nothing like it does in the picture when I made it... but it was still yummy! I served it with Texas Garlic Mashed Potatoes instead of rice and that worked really well."

"A lot of the recipes I have tried from taste of home are great. I made this one tonight and it was AWFUL. You couldn't really taste the lemon, the recipe calls for too much oregano. It was just yuck."

"Not something we cared for at all. The chicken wasn't appetizing looking because it was pale and we didn't care for the sauce either. The only good thing was the chicken was moist. I should've stuck with my own lemon chicken recipe."

"Due to high winter power bills I have started a month of slowcooking! I'm into week 2 and only a few recipes are really good, this is one of them. Easy and so tasty. I might use more lemon juice next time. I used about 1 cup of sour cream. The sauce was thin but you could easily thicken it with cornstarch and water, turn to high and cook for 20 minutes. I served it with a barley risotto recipe from this website and it was equally tasty."
