This looks so very delicious! I cannot wait to try it )

Wow, that's a lot of lemon! That's not a problem for me -- citrus is basically my favorite flavor ever. This could be a favorite of mine.

I'm certainly going to try this crispy lemon chicken. It looks so scrumptious. I like the fact that it is baked. The lemon also adds a different element to breaded chicken so I'm looking forward to that. I'm glad I found another way to prepare chicken breasts as I really like them but the rest of the family gets bored. I think they'll like this one!

This was delicious. The bread crumb crust on the chicken is amazing.

Both the flavor and the texture of this chicken dish were amazing! Loved the breading and the lemon flavor -- a great, fresh and simple dinner!

This was so good! I love chicken with a bread crumb crust. This chicken was perfectly buttery and lemony.
