YUMMY! Made this for the first time for dinner and it was excellent. I did not have fresh basil or lemon so I had to used dried basil and used 2 teaspoons and used the "real lemon" lemon juice and left the shredded lemon out. Did not have soft cream cheese so had to use block cream cheese instead. It was fine, just soften it prior to cooking. This was so good with the changes I imagine it would be even better made just as written. This is definitely going to be one I keep in the rotation!
My husband really liked this but I wasn't crazy about it. The lemon and tomato combo didn't work for me. It didn't taste bad, it just wasn't something I'd ever want to make again.
This was amazing. Can't wait to make it again! I think I'll be adding a little vodka next time. :)
Hubbie and I loved this. Not too bad for the waistline, either, as long as you don't eat a huge portion. We used fat-free cream cheese. I also didn't use any of the lemon zest and it was still quite tangy.
Used some grass fed ground beef instead of chicken. Added some chedder cheese as a topping. What an easy and very tasty dinner.
First of all, this was delicious! I didn't have any tomato sauce so I used ketchup. We didn't have any chicken breast, so I substituted imitation crab meat. I also don't like lemon juice so I used orange juice instead. It was delightful.
I made this as is and it was great. The lemon really adds a freshness to the recipe.
What I like best was the simplicity of the recipe which produced a very delicious meal. I didn't have any chicken so I used a pound of ground turkey which worked well. Also with the acidity from the diced tomatoes, I don't think it needed quite so much lemon. I might start with half the amount and add it in to taste at the end.
