I light lighter fare better than my husband and children, so I often make a single-serving dish for myself and something else for the rest of the family. This is a favorite. —Becky Bolte, Jewell, Kansas

"We apologize for an error in this recipe, but thank you for bringing it to our attention. The amount of lemon juice should only be 1/4 cup. It will be corrected here soon.

"First, I must say this is the first time I've written a bad review. With that said...I agree w/previous should be called too much lemon chicken. There is WAY too much lemon! The amount of lemon in the recipe (both in the magazine *best chicken recipes* and online) can't possibly be right. All we could taste was lemon; couldn't taste garlic, onion, or soy. There was so much lemon we couldn't stand to eat it. This was probably the worst recipe I've ever made from TOH."
