NOTHING IS MORE ANNOYING THAN WHEN I COME ON THIS SITE TO READ REVIEWS OF MEALS I'D LIKE TO MAKE ONLY TO FIND PEOPLE WHO HAVEN'T MADE THE MEAL MAKING UNNECESSARY COMMENTS ABOUT IT AND COMPLAINING!! IT'S OK IF A RECIPE IS MADE DIFFERENTLY THAN WHAT YOU ARE USED TO. IT'S ALSO OK TO TRY IT BEFORE BASHING IT.

Made this last night for just my wife and myself. I made half the chicken and all the sauce and it was wonderful. I cooked up a cup of orzo which I added to the sauce just before serving. Will definitely be making this again and again.

Hi Terry, You can use just the egg whites from real eggs too if you're watching calories or cholesterol! Works great .

Hi Terry - I just wanted to let you know that you would need two real eggs for 1/2 cup of egg substitute. I'm planning on trying the recipe also. Good luck!

We followed this recipe just about exactly, and it was literally amazing. This is one of the best chicken recipes I've made this year (I know, it's only April). We had it with some brown rice. We will be making this again for sure.

My husband and I loved this recipe, I used real eggs, instead of the "egg substitution stuff". I also made extra sauce and served it with fettuccine which soaked up the lemony sauce too and a side of fresh sauteed mushrooms...
