Reviews for Lemon Chicken with Pasta
"One of my favorites, simple flavors and the lemon is just right, not too overpowering. Definite comfort food."
"This was so good but I made the following changes. I used crushed crackers for the breadcrumbs (I was out of them) and also added onion powder to the coating. I doubled the recipe and used the juice of one lemon and extra chicken broth to make up for the liquid. Next time I would zest the lemon as well. I also made broccoli and added it to the dish. Also, I would reduce the amount of flour a bit, had to add extra broth to get the desired consistency."
"This is an excellent and quick dinner. I leave off the Parmesan - it doesn't need it."
"This is a favorite of the whole family. I love that it is so easy, healthy and loved by my picky eaters."
"This recipe was not a favorite of mine. The lemon flavor was way to over powering for me. I will not be making this again."
"We love this easy main dish. It has a great lemon flavor to go with the chicken. MMMMMM!"
