Fresh lemon and dill create a quick Greek-inspired pan sauce for simple sautéed chicken breasts. Make it a meal: Serve with roasted broccoli and whole-wheat orzo.

"Very easy and quick. I usually don't measure my ingredients (unless baking) so I'm thinking I was a little shy on the dill. I will add more next time because I would like more dill flavor in the dish. Definitely a keeper! "

Easy and Delicious!

I made this but added two tablespoons lemon juice and cooked the onion and garlic until just about caramelized as one reviewer stated, which added more flavor. I aslo cut up some fresh mushrooms(about 3/4 C when I added the broth. This was outstanding and we actually were fighting over the leftover sauce! I did make it with the asparagus also. Perfect pairing! A+++++

Easy and Delicious

This was pretty easy to make. Flavorful as long as you add a bit more lemon. I was worried the flour would sully the flavor so I used corn starch instead. Next time I'll try adding some lemon zest too.

Fast, delicious, easy
Very tasty

This was pretty easy to make over all. I would maybe even add more lemon juice but I thought the amount of dill was perfect.

Great flavor, fairly easy to make

Use extra dill yum,tasty!
I did quick browning of the chicken in frying pan,added the garlic quick fry then transferred into casserole dish with rest of ingredients,layed fresh dill across chicken plus extra in dish as well,cooked in oven all the flavours came out, my family all loved it!

Easy to make,lots of

Easy to make,lots of flavour,loved the extra dill in it!

Just so-so

I followed the directions exactly, but we all agreed it did not have much flavor which seemed odd given the ingredients. If I make it again I will need to add some things to give it pep. Maybe garlic salt, a sliver of butter, more lemon...something.

Simple enough to make
