    It was delicious! The chicken needed a bit more seasoning for our liking but will definitely make again.

    Gooey, cooked an additional ~35 minutes past the joke of “15-20 minutes”, still not done in the middle. Consider using spices with more taste as well.

    It turned out well, but the flavors weren’t quite right, it was a little low on the acid (I had to add more lemon) and it needed something with a harder flavor to balance out the flavor of the lemon in my opinion

    Amazing I like a little thicker sauce, so I’ll probably make a rue first to thicken it up a little more. All in all, it was a total hit and have been told that it needs to go into rotation for dinners.

    delicious!!! i have very picky eaters and they loved it. one thing to note and learn from my mistake...don’t wait for the butter to get too hot before adding adding the chicken broth, you’ll have a mess to clean lol!!!

    Thought “no way this is going to be good...it’s too simple.” Used chicken breasts and am happy to say I was wrong. This is a winner with the entire family!

    Delicious the chicken was moist and flavorful and the brown butter sauce was an excellent addition, though I ended up with quite a bit left over

    Best chicken ever! Moist and buttery.

    It had great flavor and wasn’t dry at all. Probably the best chicken I’ve ever made. I think I’ll use breasts next time and only half the lemon. I made it tonight with green beans but will definitely add rice to this. So good!!!

    Really good and very quick to make. 20min plus a couple minutes for broiling was best for me, when I only did 15, it was still a little pink in one of the thighs. Popped it back in for 5 and it was fine thereafter. Was a little salty, could’ve been the brand of seasoning I used, and given how much butter was left in the pan, 1/4-C probably wasn’t necessary. So next time I’ll dial back the ingredients just a bit so it’s not as wasteful. Totally gonna make this again :)

    Best chicken I’ve made yet! It had great flavor and I topped it over rice, make sure when you’re seasoning the chicken before you bake it to let it really soak up the seasoning, it will taste way more juicy

    Looks impressive at the end but very easy and quick to make. Wouldn’t change anything about the recipe, and I ddI add rice to make the meal a bit more balanced. Will def make again.

    Ugh this was so good! Im so happy i decided to make this recipe. I used chicken breast for this, couldnt get it to brown on top with my oven on broil but thats okay. Didnt want it to dry out. I also did some pasta on the side, and added zucchini to the pasta, was AMAZING!

    Yummy. Loved it. The Brown Butter Lemon Garlic sauce was delicious over rice. I cooked it a bit longer to get the internal temperature right for poultry. Otherwise, great recipe!
