Great recipe! Came together super quick and the whole family loved it. I doubled the sauce and served it with mashed potatoes.

This was good. Herbs were a little strong. Thats why 4 stars. I would make again.

Loved this chicken! Simple to make. I actually used chicken strips as that's what I had in the fridge and they worked just fine. The garlic was mild and sweet, and the lemon flavor was fresh and delicious. I will be making this again soon. Oh, I also served it with buttered egg noodles with lemon zest, and roasted asparagus. Great meal!

This was excellent. My daughter, who rarely asks for seconds of my cooking, actually went back for a second helping, and even said, "This is really good, mom."

This was really good!!! My husband was saying "mmm" after every bite and told me that this one is a keeper. The chicken came out tender and flavorful.

Very tasty and easy to make. I tried a little something different-once the chicken and garlic were done, I pureed the garlic into the gravy. Served with my Parmesan potatoes, and would definitely make it again!!

Delicious and moist! Love the flavor. Wouldn't have thought I would ever eat whole garlic cloves, but they were delicious as well!

This was a great recipe, it came together quickly. However, my gravy turned out really thick following these directions, I added extra wine and broth, it turned out good and tasted good, very moist, will make again would impress guests.
