    Really good. The sauce needs to rest after cooking for the lemon juice to mellow.

    Delicious!!! I didn’t have garlic salt so I subbed 1 clove of fresh garlic into the salt/pepper seasoning stage. (I also added sliced mushrooms and 2 Tbsp rinsed capers to the simmering sauce - be careful no to over-salt if you’re using capers!)

    Kids and hubby loved it. My son even said the chicken was better than nonna’s! I squeezed lemon juice (bottled) on the chicken before I added the salt, pepper and garlic powder (subbed for garlic salt). I also reduced the amount of lemon by half and added a bit at a time until it was to our taste. I tried the sauce before any lemon and then after and it’s so fresh and delicious with the lemon!

    Really tasty. Add a small amount of pasta water to the sauce and allow to thicken.

    Turned out great! I added asparagus when I was cooking the garlic and tripled the sauce

    It turned out great, be carful with the pan size though if it's too big the butter won't spread correctly and it won't brown. Either way it turns out delicious.

    I had a hard time with the sauce being too strong but I guess it’ll just take some practice. It was good either way

    Was pretty good very lemony but I think it was my own fault Bc I tried to make this recipe for one and wasn’t sure how much of what to use. I also believe I burnt something Bc my sauce was brown hahaha. Added capers and mushrooms as well

    I seriously couldnt eat this fast enough, it was so amazing!! I love lemon and my husband said it was strong on the lemon so if you have in the middle lemon lovers, maybe cut the lemon part in half. I thought it tasted like I went to a 5 star reaturant. So making again!
