Simple and delicious! I was worried that it was gonna be garlic overkill w/ the amount of powder used but it created a nice crust and was perfect. For the few ingredients used this was very flavorful. I did use evoo instead of butter to keep it on the healthier side. I will def be using this recipe again as the whole family loved it YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This is a very 'basic' recipe to start out with but it needs a lot more herbs in it in order to make it tasty. Chop up and add in some fresh Parsley Thyme Rosemary and Sage. Read More

Extremely simple and my family loved it too. I would recommend pounding the chicken flat in order to get uniform thickness for cook time. Read More

I really enjoyed this chicken. I pounded it flat before putting it in the pan so that it would cook more evenly. I did cut back on the amount of garlic powder and only used 1 Tbsp. I used a mini fine mesh strainer to evenly sprinkle it over the chicken breasts and it was plenty. The lemon flavor was a great touch. I served this with a rice-orzo pilaf and roasted Brussels sprouts for a fantastic meal. Read More

Very simple to get together but really tasty! Don't be hesitant to use the full amount of garlic powder in the recipe. I was afraid it would be overpowering but it turned out just perfect. I highly recommend you pound the chicken out to even thickness about 3/4"- 1" thick. It will cook more evenly and quicker while remaining moist and juicy. Read More

This has minimal ingredients but offers a plethora of flavor profiles especially when the recipe only requires a few ingredients! I loved the flavor which was very tender and I will definitively keep this in my "go to" easy chicken meals. Read More

Can you say yummy! I used clarified butter chicken thighs and added red bell peppers to the pan otherwise followed recipe. Really really good. Quick and easy to boot! Who can ask for more. My brother who is a chef said it's a great recipe. Served with broccoli and put the lemon-butter sauce from the chicken over the broccoli. OMG good. Read More
