    This turned out great!! I paird it with a stuffed zucchini boat dish I found on Yummly. It was a great, low carb dinner. We love garlic so I added about double the amount. This is definitely a “do-over”

    Really enjoyed this recipe. I used pre-cut boneless breasts might have preferred with skin on for that crispy look. Also used double the garlic and some fresh poultry spices. I will make this again.

    I used chicken breasts. The foavor was amazing! I made baked potatoes with this and the garlic, lemon butter was amazing on them!

    It was too sour, so added some honey to balance the flavour out.

    The bomb! Going into my family rotation.
    Every mom with picky eaters, or a busy person needs a recipe like this! It's not off the charts but it's so simple and it tastes like you put some effort into it. My 2 teen boys and husband gave me the approval to do this on "busy" nights - I don't get all 3 of them to agree often so this was huge ;) Cooking time varies based on thickness of thighs - mine were Costco and done in 15 minutes; I then simmered in the sauce and then put the pan under the broiler for a few minutes (while in the sauce) to get a little crisp on top. Perfect. My favorite though was the sauce over white rice (although I added a little S&P) - took my rice to a new level! Loved the lemon/butter combo. Keeper for me!

    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!
