    Had this again last night. Added capers, and it was awesome. Added my pic this time. We LOVE this chicken. One note, the coating barely covered 3 breasts, very thinly and sparsely. You wouldn't want it thick, but, I think next time I will double that part. I don't pound the breasts, I cook them as is, anc cover with the lid after browning, just as personal preference. Tender and juicy! GREAT recipe!!

    Val, thank you very much for this lovely recipe! It's very close to the chicken we love from our favorite Greek restaurant (chicken lemonado). I left the parsley out until garnishing as my guy is iffy about it at times. My drippings got rather browned, so my sauce turned out a bit darker than yours but still tasted delicious!
    I sent my guy to work with a sandwich on Ciabatta bread, with some of Janet's Feta, Lemon, Dill Slather and a bit of mayo and a piece of this chicken. He said it was great.

    I also browned my chicken in just a drizzle of EVOO with a pad of margarine.

    We had this tonight and it was awesome! One of those WOW factor recipes. Big big hit. I juiced the entire lemon, so I added a little more parsley to the sauce. I also put the chicken back in the sauce with the lid on while I mashed my taters, and it was fabulous! Bryan said to be sure and give it a 5! : )
