    Added a splash of white wine instead of broth (didn't have any). Yummy. I will make this again and again. - 3/24/10

    Loved this! I didn't realize I was out of chicken broth, so I substituted cooking sherry for it, but it turned out great! I think next time I'll keep the sherry and still add the chicken broth bc there didn't seem to be enough "sauce". - 10/22/09

    I just made it..however I put the chicken back in the pan because I don't understand how the lemon juice and stock would thicken without the flour that was on the chicken ...it's good and lemony!! - 11/9/07

    My husband who doesn't really care for chicken went back for seconds. This was a great recipe. The sauce wasn't as thick as we like, but no problem, just added a little arrowroot and it thicken right up and didn't change the nutritional value. Diffinently would make this again. - 9/26/07
