This just didn't taste right to us. We thought the lemon was too much. I will try it again and not use as much lemon. Sorry!

Good recipe. I didn't use yogurt...just split the chicken breast, put each piece between plastic wrap and flattened with a rolling pin. Also I didn't use any lemon juice when browning chicken.....

Wow, my husband and I loved this recipe! Delicious! His first reaction was "what did I do to deserve a fancy meal?" It's his new favorite dish. I made the recipe with two changes: no yogurt and ...
