Buttered onions are a great addition to the lemon sauce of this easy supper. Best of all, it takes only a few minutes to brown the lightly breaded chicken on the stove top. -Kay Shimonek of Corsicana, Texas

"Really good. However, I think my chicken breasts were too big--they took forever to cook and I had to add broth just to keep pan from being completely dry. Sauce ended up being so brown my husband thought it was beef broth! Haha but we will try it again. Still had great flavor."

"I used lemon thyme from my herb garden; maybe a teaspoon. Talk about packing a punch!! It was too sharp of a taste for my boyfriend with the lemon juice and lemon thyme and I used a strong chicken bouillon but I can't get enough of it."

"If you don't like the flavor of thyme, you will not like this. My husband and I did not care for this at all."

"This is one of my family's favorite dishes! We love the lemon sauce and put it over rice! Add green beans or broccoli as a side and it's a wonderful well balanced meal!"
