CHICKEN IN LEMON SAUCE

Ok.  Confession time.  Last week, there was one night that I didn’t cook dinner.  We ate…I’m so ashamed….pizza.  Not even a good delivery pizza.  Not that we ate frozen pizza.  That’s the bottom rung on the ladder, if you ask me.  But I didn’t make a fresh pizza, either.  It was that so-called “fresh pizza” they sell in the supermarket deli.  If you haven’t tried it, trust me; it isn’t that fresh.  It just isn’t frozen.  

But I made up for it another night, and that’s my blog post for today.  I am always ready to try new recipes for chicken, and this one turned out to be a keeper.
