"Love it! This chicken is really good. I didn't have bread crumbs so I used panko and it came out great."

"Very good. My adult daughter who doesnt care for meat, loved this. She wanted the recipe and said it looked like restaurant food. :)

I only had chicken tenders--they worked fine. I didn't have fresh parsley, so I put the dry parsley into the butter and microwaved it so it wouldn't be dry. I used panko bread crumbs and I used buttermilk instead of regular milk, and I let the meat soak for about an hour. I also used fresh lemon instead of bottled lemon.
The meat had a pleasant taste and appearance, although the panko crumbs didn't brown well so after it reached 170degrees I put it under the broiler to brown a bit. In the future, I'd probably brown it when it got to 165 degrees if it needs it. Next time I will double it for leftovers. It tasted great the next day and it would taste good sliced up for sandwiches."

"Delicious! The chicken was so juicy and tender! This recipe is a keeper! I doubled the butter, juice, and garlic mixture just to make sure all the chicken was covered. I also added extra garlic b/c we love it!"

"The first time I tasted this recipe was at a friend's house. She served it cold & we made sandwiches out of it. I got the recipe from her that day! I make Garlic Lover's chicken for dinner and eat it hot, straight from the oven. I also like having leftovers because it is just as good cold. It can be made with chicken drumsticks or thighs also."
