"Very simple, very tasty. I loved the lemon flavor so much I used the pan drippings to dip my chicken in as I are it."

"I made this lastnight for my family and they loved it! The only thing I didn't do was used cooking spray for the pan, I just browned the chicken with the oil. Then transfered it to a baking dish (since I didn't have a ovenproof skillet)."

"Lemon added a nice light taste to the chicken. I will add this to my recipe book, because I'll make it again. Added the leftover chicken breast to a parmasan pasta dish the following day."
