    I used chicken thigh fillets cut into 3 pieces  -  15 Feb 2017


    Altered ingredient amounts. Delicious! I scaled back on the butter, though. When I first put the parmesan into the hot butter to make the sauce, it scalded and clumped into chunks. So I had to strain them out and pour the sauce from the pan into a small dish, wait for it to cool, then add the cheese and a little water. It turned out fine, and delicious!  -  08 Oct 2008


    I have to agree with the other reviews and say that my attempts to melt the cheese into the lemon-butter sauce weren't very successful. I did a little research and found out a lot of other recipies call for the cheese to be added to the chicken during the breading process, I might give that a try next time.  -  08 Oct 2008
