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 used freshly grated cheese, followed the recipe exactly, and ended up throwing the "sauce" away. The chicken breasts cooked in the butter & lemon juice alone was pretty tasty. This won't be staying in my recipe box. - 08 Oct 2008

My god.. All that butter for one person! However, it was really good. I too, couldn't get the cheese to combine w/ the butter to make the sauce; the two separated when I poured it over the chicken. - 08 Oct 2008
