Oh wow this is so good!!! The chicken was moist and tender. The flavor from the lemon and rosemary was perfect. Nothing was over done on the seasoning. This is company worthy!!

Excellent!! Didn't have lemons or lemon juice so had to subsitute lime juice. It was so good not sure if I want to use the lemon next time! And there will be a next time! This was delicious!

This was delicious! I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs instead of breasts. Followed the rest of the recipe exactly. I probably put in too much red pepper flakes because it had a kick to it. But my family loved it. Will definitely make again.

This was easy and a big hit in our house. I did not use the flour. I will be making this again. I really enjoyed the bacon with the lemon and rosemary flavors .

Really Good! I was making my Chicken Marsala, on the weekend which also incorporates browning floured chicken so I made extra of that and also extra bacon from breakfast so a weeknight dinner came together quickly. I also used the zest of the lemon.
