pretty good lemony chicken didn't have lemon slices and cream i replaced it with 1/4 cup of milk so it didn't come out as creamy but still turned out good also used chicken bone broth and chicken breast instead, id suggest cutting the chicken in to cubes if using breasts. came out pretty good add some white rice and you got yourself a nice meal

A tasty recipe, lemon flavour was a little sharp. Added in more thyme, garlic granules and sugar while the sauce was simmering, which rounded the taste off perfectly. Made enough for 4 meals can’t wait to eat the rest up.

It was delicious. I'm not much of one for 'Cooking' but this was quite easy to follow, and didn't take hours to cook like some recipes do.

Delicious, sauce was perfect for three thighs. Might want to double it if using 6 thighs.

Great recipe, I did add a l little of my own creation. I added fettuccine noodles, cooked of course, right before I put it in the oven, I did use 2 pieces of chicken and kept the recipe portions the same so I could add the noodles without running out of sauce. I did zest up a lemon and made my own lemon pepper. It turned out great.

This was really tasty, but I might use a little bit less lemon next time (personal taste). The sauce is even better when reheated (I think as the sharpness of the lemon has disappeared). For a healthier sauce, mix milk with cornflour to the desired consistency to use instead of cream.

Sauce is amazing... Used the leftovers for a pasta dish the next day!! Definitely using again... YUM!
