    I loved this! I substituted crushed Special K for the bread crumbs which was just as tasty and lightened the calories! I can't wait to make this for friends! - 4/6/09

  • This is a dinner favorite in our house. I like it very lemony as I like strong flavors. I use the juice from 1 fresh medium sized lemon.....So good and tender. My husband (the cook in our relationship) finally stopped picking on my cooking after I made this! - 1/16/14

  • Chicken was moist.. but I didn't think the lemon-y taste was enough. Also, my bread crumbs got soggy :( - 1/12/11

  • I made this but added about a tablespoon of olive oil mayo (not exactly healthy, but...) to the butter mixture. I also didn't have seasoned bread crumbs, so I used whole wheat bread crumbs and added a few things (oregano, lemon pepper, basil and I forget what else). It turned out delicious! - 9/23/10
