    I recommend chopping the chicken into bite-size chunks after it has browned, then add the onions and garlic and herbs. Very good. I have made this several times now and enjoy it every time. - 1/15/09

    Eccellent recipe. We also are not wine users and so just added extra chicken broth for the liquid. Also used canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh and was great. Very nice to have the fresh lemon to add flavour. Will definitely make it again. - 7/1/09

    I made this using boneless skinless thighs -recipe didnt' specify- I used lemon juice instead I used Italian herbs and a LOT of garlic as that is our liking. I had frozen peppers & onions on hand so used them which made this recipe very easy and will make again! Be generous with spices! - 4/28/09

    I subbed a few ingredients: 1/4 cup tomato sauce instead of tomatoes, some lemon juice instead of lemons slices, large peppers, and a more sweet white wine. It still tasted wonderful. I served it over some whole grain brown rice and orzo. The tomato sauce, broth & wine made the chicken very moist. - 3/21/08

    Really tasty! Next time I would cut the lemon into chunks rather than slices, as the fruit part dissolved (nice) but the peel was hard to see and bitter if you eat it (not so nice). With chunks you could pick the peel out much easier and not eat it by mistake. - 9/21/09

    I substituted the oregano for basil which changes the name of the recipe but we loved it that way. I am not much on oregano in a dish but will try it someday. It is great with fresh basil and a few mushrooms. This recipe can use different veggies to a persons liking which is nice!! - 7/27/09

    My favorite chicken recipe! Marvelous! Only thing, it calls for a lemon, and when you use a regular sized lemon it is wonderful. I made it again and used one of those huge lemons and it was just too much, so if you have only a big lemon, I would suggest to only use 1/2 or 3/4. - 1/22/10

    This recipe was fantastic. It was easy to cook and I just put the lemon juice in instead of a whole lemon. It was still tangy but not bitter and had a great balance when topped off with some parmesan cheese. I served it over penne and I'll try brown rice next time. Kudos - 4/27/09

    This was a very good recipe. I cut it in half and used boneless chicken breasts. It was very tasty! But I'm not sure it is possible that it only has 109 calories and 1 gm of fat per serving. That's 6oz of chicken per serving. I think the nutrition info may be off. Still very healthy & good! - 9/25/09

  • Delicious! Instead of cutting, I pounded the chicken breasts thin, browned them and added the ingredients on top. Beautiful presentation with the garlic, onion, tomatoes and red pepper on top. When I removed them, I put a tiny bit of flour in the juice and made a gravy which I put on each. So fancy! - 1/2/14
