skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite size pieces
potatoes, peeled and sliced
fresh cilantro, chopped
We really liked this, although took the advice from the previous reviewer and cut back
on the juice and lemon pepper a bit. We also boiled the potato slices for about 4 minutes
before we put them in the pan, and they turned out perfectly. The chicken comes out
very tender, and with a good flavor. If you want some color on the chicken, you'd better
brush it with a bit of butter after you uncover it, and then bake it for the 10 uncovered minutes.
Ohh I really wanted this to work. I love cilantro and lemon chicken but this was just to much. To much cilantro, to much lemon. Funny thing is I even halfed everything and still to much. I soaked the potatoes and they still didn't cook right. I did not care for this recipe.
Took the advice of two reviewers and 1) prepared this on the stovetop and 2) sprinkled Old Bay seasoning on the whole chicken breast prior to browning in a combo of butter and olive oil. I boiled new red potatoes and added them to the skillet to absorb the flavors of the lemon juice and cilantro.
OMG...This was an absolutely delish recipe....yes we cut the lemon juice down and I added extra cilantro. I also sprinkled Old Bay over it all instead of using lemon-pepper, and it was so yum...even the kiddos loved it...I recommend this to anyone who loves chicken.
I've tried several recipes before with meat and potatoes in the same dish, and the potatoes are always undercooked unless I cook them prior to putting in the pan with the rest of the ingredients. So that's what I did--I cubed the potatoes instead of slicing, and cooked in microwave about six minutes until they were practically cooked. I then just added to the chicken, coated with the mixture and baked as directed. I like the flavors in this recipe, but they are strong. So if you aren't a big fan of lemon or lemon pepper, I wouldn't try this. To be fair, though, I did marinate my chicken overnight bc it was frozen, so I defrosted it in the lemon cilantro marinade. Also, I think this makes a lot. I scaled down to one serving but only used one chicken breast bc bf is gone this week, and I have enough for leftovers. Thanks for the recipe!
I made this recipe minus the pepper... and it was fine. I do not know that that reviewer who gave it a 1 was thinking!
Too Much cilantro & lemon over powrerd the chicken & potatoes!
NOT RECOMMENDED! I was excited to find this dish as I always have Chicken breast in the fridge and had a bunch of cilantro left over from a previous recipie.
I could forgive the potatoes coming out underdone, but the lemon and cilantro did not play well together and combined for an overpowering flavor that none of us were fond of.
