"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!"

"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!!"

"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."
