  • Wish I read the comments before I prepared this dish. It is so tart....I'm talking it will make you pucker up tart and stay like that all day!!!!!! Gonna try adding some sweetener. The 4.5 stars really fooled me. - 4/29/14

  • This was a tasty dish a little tart so I added a wee bit of sugar and also some lemon zest (when I put in the onions). Future Husband and I enjoyed it very much. It went well with Broccoli and a Baked Potato. - 5/29/08

  • This was great! I took the advice from another commentor and added three packets of stevia natural sweetner to take the tartness out of it- but this will definately be a re-do. The chicken was so moist, tender and flavorful! - 5/14/08

  • I tried this recipe and my entire family LOVED IT!! My 5yr old grandson ate 1 1/2 chicken breasts! I did add a little lemon pepper to the flour and I also added lemon zest to the gravy-If everyone liked them I would've added sliced mushrooms to this-I served it with the Broccoli Asparagus casserole. - 4/10/08
