"Chicken breast sauteed and served with a sauce of butter, lemon juice and Parmesan cheese. Very French, very elegant, and also simple and tasty. This single serving recipe is ideal for one of those nights when you're 'caught up in a world all your own'!"

This is SOOO easy...after prep time, it took me about 10-15 minutes. Adding about a teaspoon of minced garlic makes it even better. =)

I ran into the same issue other reviewers did. There is too much butter, not enough lemon and the cheese does strange things when added. I tried letting the butter mixture cool before adding t...

This is SOOO easy...after prep time, it took me about 10-15 minutes. Adding about a teaspoon of minced garlic makes it even better. =)

Delicious! I scaled back on the butter, using only one stick for three servings (which for me equaled three chicken breasts). When I first put the parmesan into the hot butter to make the sauce,...

This recipe was quick and easy to prepare!! A delicious treat to the plain old plain old chicken. I doubled the recipe and used chicken breast strips cut to bite size for the kids, they loved ...

I have to agree with the other reviews and say that my attempts to melt the cheese into the lemon-butter sauce weren't very successful. I did a little research and found out a lot of other recip...
