    It was okay, but I don’t think it needs the lemon slices, and maybe only half the amount of juice. Lemon flavor was too overpowering and there was a bitterness from the slices. I think I will look for an alternate recipe.

    It was delicious, but definitely does have a strong lemon flavor. If you aren't into having lots of lemon, I would recommend using less than the recipe mentions. I added extra garlic, but followed the recipe otherwise.

    I rly didn't like the lemon slices releasing the bitterness of the peals into the meal, something that goes great in cocktails.

    Very easy and efficient that required just one skillet. Lots of flavor, will make again.

    It came out okay. I think next time I’ll coat the chicken in panko instead of flour.

    It was ok, but the sauce was too thick; next time, I will put less flour in the sauce.

    This dish was quite tasty! The lemon onion sauce over the breaded chicken really popped. I paired it with steamed brocolli. I will nake this again.

    Turned out great! I did 1/2 cup of pasta water and 1/2 cup of broth instead of 1 cup of broth because I made pasta with it. I will definitely make it again but instead of slicing the breasts I’ll just get cutlets.

    One of my husbands favourites. It was delicious. We are doing a low carb diet so used almond flour and served it over zucchini noodles. Turned out great

    Delicious!!! Very tasty. Made a sauce from the juices by adding more flour. Was soooo good on the angel hair pasta.
