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.
