"Light sauce which i appreciated, but the chicken needs to be submerged in the sauce while cooking, and its a little plain. Good, but I would rather spend time trying new recipes instead of this one again."

"This was very good but will make a few changes next time. More lemon juice as the lemon flavor was practically non-existent and cut the thyme in half as that was overpowering. I used 4 big still partially frozen bone-in chicken breasts which were perfect for 4 adults and left the skin on. The meat was tender and juicy - absolutely perfect! As others stated the sauce was more of a juice so I thickened it with a little cornstarch. This is a keeper as the aroma was mouthwatering when I walked in the door after work!"

"It smelled wonderful when we walked into the house at the end of the day! And we found it quite tasty! I had used golden mushroom soup, and I liked the result. It did not seem too salty. We thought the sauce added a lot to the dinner, helping to moisten the chicken. I might not serve this to special guests but it's a great family dish."

"It was really easy to make and smelled great cooking, but really didn't have much flavor. I won't bother to make it again."
