Recipe by Chef John
"Chicken French has everything I love in a recipe. It's delicious and easy, frugal, yet fancy, and everyone loves it. Better yet, it has a vague, confusing history and completely preposterous name. This not-French recipe hails from the Rochester area of New York State, where it's a staple on virtually every Italian-American restaurant menu."

Yay, I am the first to rate this!!! This was really elegant and extremely tasty. It is the easiest thing to make and everyone raved about it. I followed the recipe to a "T" and it was wonderful. I also watched the video which Chef lets you know a few different things you can use in place of some of the ingredients. I used sherry and it was delicious. I also made this for a family get together so I quadrupled the recipe without any problems and like I said it is so easy to make. I also made a beet salad with this and had some white wine. And as always Chef John, perfect. Thanks again :)
Way too much lemon. I added another 2 cups of broth to offset the bitter taste.
This was absolutely delicious! I read other reviews and decided to cut the lemon from 2 to 1. 2 would have been a sour piece of chicken, but with 1 it was darn near perfect. This is going into the rotation!
Simply amazing!! I even almost screwed this up on accident by forgetting to brown the chicken in the oil and butter and started to reduce the liquid when I realized, oh I missed a step. This is hands down the best chicken recipe I have ever tried! My husband was so impressed that I think I am going to have to make it again tomorrow so my parsley doesn't go bad! The lemon is amazing in the dish if you put the right amount of butter in it. I am addicted to this chicken, just can't get over that flavor. Thanks Chef John, your recipes never fail.
This was THE BEST! Even our picky three year old ate EVERY LAST BITE.
Very good, however there is too much lemon juice for our taste, I've halved it. Pork chops can be substituted for chicken. Instead of reducing the liquids I've thickened it with a little cornstarch and broth in order to have more sauce to put over pasta or rice.
