I added 1 tsp. of garlic powder to the flour and garlic salt mixture, it was fantastic ! A very easy and fast recipe that tastes like it was much more complicated and time consuming. I will add this to my "go to " list.

This is a great recipe. It's very easy and the whole family likes it. I use 1 packet of True Lemon in place of the lemon in the recipe. It adds just a touch of lemon flavor to the chicken, which my children like, rather than too much lemon.

Simple, Fast, and not too many ingredients. Looks like a good recipe to do on a work night

A hit! (Even the man of the house agrees…) I paired Purdue Fit and Easy Boneless, Skinless Chicken-Breasts, Thin-Sliced with reduced fat crescent rolls and sugar snap peas. Quick, easy and delicious! Make room in your recipe box for this one!

I made this recipe using turkey cutlets. Towards the end of the cooking time, I added baby portobello mushrooms and fresh lemon slices. My husband and I both loved it! I served it with roasted yellow squash and a green salad. Very easy to make! A great healthy choice!

This recipe was very easy and very good. I even passed it on to one of my best friends and her family loved it also. We are not big fans of a strong lemon flavor so I just reduced the lemon juice a little. Definitely a keeper for the rotation of picky eaters in my family!!

This is a favorite in our home and I make it often! I like to serve it with skinny mashed potatoes.

This is really good and easy. I usually have lemons on hand and everything else in the pantry. The kids really liked it too and it is ready in a flash. I served it over angel hair pasta. I used a little more lemon juice and garlic salt because we love the flavors. Very good!
