    Pets'R'us's Note:

    This dish is originally Greek with a soft lemon flavor, add more lemon juice to suit your tase. Rice or fine pasta goes well with this. Try to use the dill; it gives it a nice flavor.

      My DH really enjoyed this! I didn't try it because I ended up with a migraine :-( and there was none left. I used boneless skiless thighs and used dried dill. I trust his taste buds and next time I will get some!

      I love this recipe! I pound the chicken breasts flat before cooking. The sauce is great over brown rice. Makes a very nice company or casual meal. Even my picky teenager loves it.

      my family is very picky about lemon chicken, they often find the lemon flavor too overbearing, but they all agreed that they loved this. it sort of reminded me of avgolemono soup, with the egg/lemon mixture and the sauce was lovely. i used chicken breasts and cooked it in the water for only a few minutes for the water to boil, this was a quick week night dinner.
