As most other reviewers noted this was a great base. Some changes I made: I scaled to 4 servings and cut the chicken into pieces. I added more mushrooms garlic and tomatoes. I also put a bit of sugar to cut the acidity of both lemon and tomatoes. I originally cut all the veggies up and put it one bowl with the garlic lemon juice sugar and tomatoes then added that to the pan after I cooked the chicken and set it aside. Just because of timing I ended up simmering the whole thing for a few minutes. The end result..you have a thin sauce that goes great with pasta and you can taste a hint of lemon. Read More

I found this recipe quite lackluster. The flavours didn't blend well together the tomatoes were out of place and the whole concoction was a let down. Read More

Tasty. After reading other reviews I browned the chicken w/the onion then added the mushrooms and tomatoes. It didn't make sense to drain the tomatoes as the liquid added moisture to the chicken and made a nice sauce to mix with rice. I cut back on the lemon juice and added garlic basil and Italian seasoning. Read More

This rates 5 stars with me. It was super quick. The chicken was tender and moist. And best of all this is a REALLY versitile recipe. I can definitely see using zucchini squash green beans eggplant etc. or whatever else is on hand as part of the mix. And you could certainly try a little balsamic vinegar to sweeten up the sauce (drop the lemon) or even using white wine. This recipe is a great base with endless possibilites. I will certainly enjoy trying them all! Read More

I changed a few things (added more lemon doubled the tomato and spiced the chicken with paprika & garlic) it was very quick and very delicious. My husband loved it and my 2 year old thought it was great. Read More

I thought that this recipe was great! I took some of the other reviewers additions to the recipe like parsley garlic salt and added some of my own. I added basil and black pepper to taste. Then I cut up fresh cherry tomatoes that I put around the chicken on a plate. Tasty and looks appetizing too. I also only cooked the onions until they were tender and then I added them at the end until slightly brown. I also added the tomatoes at the end so the chicken could cook longer. Nice and brown.

Love it! Nice and light. If you want to make it into a little more comfort-type food -- skip the lemon add 1 clove garlic 1/2 tsp oregano - brown chicken/garlic first mix together tomato/spices (salt to taste) add 2 T. to 1/4 c. dry vermouth (depending on how much you like it) simmer then top with italian mix cheese at the end cook just long enough to melt the cheese.
