    I think it would have tasted better without the lemon slices. They did taint the honey butter sauce. Everything else was fabulous.

    Good flavor, used a lot of asparagus, rice on the side. Chicken took longer than expected per recipe. Will make again and allow for more cook time.

    Fantastic flavors. Asparagus picked up the lemon flavors nicely and the overall dish was delicious and light, but definitely filling.

    This was easy and delicious! I altered the recipe slightly to include garlic and excluded the flour as my husband and I are doing WW. Very good!

    Super easy and delicious!! You may want to take it easy with the lemon pepper seasoning or cut the lemon in half or maybe I just used too much but either way it was super yummy and quick to make!

    i loved that this was such a quick & easy recipe!! i used squash instead of asparagus. & cutting the chicken into thinner slices i think does make a huge difference! but such an awesome quick dinner!

    I made it in a nonstick skillet and it was still delicious. (Update: I had two zucchini and a red bell pepper to use, so I tried it again with that, and it was delicious as well! I cut the zucchini longwise in quarters. Second picture is the pepper and zucchini version.)

    Dish was really yummy and light. Fleshed it out with some extra veggies so that it was more nutritious. Would definitely make again.

    Chicken was really nice, felt the lemons were pointless but the juice they left on the chicken did make it so yummy! So in saying that I’d rather squeeze fresh lemon over the top! I also added rice to make it a little bit more filling

    Wow!! So quick and so good! I actually added the chicken to the honey glaze and coated it instead of pouring it over :)

    Chicken was super moist (my own technique, sear 1 minute on each side and then turn heat to low for 10 minutes, then turn heat off 10 minutes before removing lid). The honey butter is a must! We ate ours with quinoa. Super fresh, quick, and yummy weeknight dinner!
