    Used different ingredients. This recipe was good, but I had to change a few things as always- I just can't help myself! Instead of white wine I used white zinfandel- this type of wine with chicken is awesome, gives a very unique but delicious flavour. I would have used half the amount of lemon juice; I love lemon, but I don't want it to be the main flavour of the dish- a little overpowering. I did not use a whole head of garlic, and probably would have prefered it minced instead of sliced. No paprika. I used garlic powder instead. Other than that it was great!  -  29 Sep 2008


    I was really hoping to like this recipe; unfortunately, after two preparations using the original, unmodified recipe, I can't say that I do. I will not be making this again, nor can I think of any changes to make to the recipe to improve it in my opinion.  -  29 Sep 2008


    Amazing! The lemon adds a subtle zing. Very simple and quick to prepare. I tried skipping the wine once and substituted for a little water and it still tasted great!  -  29 Sep 2008
