I made this with fresh squeezed lemon juice (others just can't compare) and added a bit more garlic. I loved it! Perfect for me; easy to prepare, easy portion control, and delicious and healthy! I paired it with grilled asparagus. Perfect!
My family raved about this recipe. I let it marinate several hours and then "grilled" it on a grill pan indoors. I had very little time, so the chicken had not been pounded, but it came out unbelievably tender and full of flavor.
Great recipe for weeknight meals. Not exactly company worthy but wonderful nonetheless. Also works great with pork chops. The lemon really comes through and brightens up the meat, lending a nice fresh taste. Family thought it was excellent.
Easy, quick and VERY reliable. I've made this at least a dozen times and it's always good. One of my daughter's favorites. I always pound the chicken to even thickness. Have made on the grill or indoors on the grill pan. Good hot or left-over on a salad. I like to marinate it all day and it's extra lemon-y.
