This knock off recipe is one that I have perfected over time and in my families own words, “I cant tell the difference between the restaurants and yours, its great!” Feeling proud, I just may have to take on another one of their famous dishes to create in the future.

The chicken is so crispy and the sauce with the perfect lemony tang creates a dish that is sure to be enjoyed. Drizzle that beautiful sauce right over the lightly steamed asparagus. Don’t forget the Gouda Smashed Potatoes over to the side which I also drowned in lemon sauce, Yum Yum Yummy is all I have to say.

  1. Looking forward to trying this recipe.

  2. Does it have to be olive oil to cook the chicken? Or can it be regular vegetable oil?

  3. Can the sauce be made ahead? I want to prepare this dish for our large family gathering, but only have a limited time between when we’ll return home from church & when I need to serve the food.

  4. Just had to say… Yum yum yum!
    This had always been my favorite at “The Factory” and now it’s my favorite at home. Thanks so much.

  5. One of my favorites from the Cheesecake Factory. Great recipe! The whole family loved it.

  6. I made this for my sister on her birthday because she loves it at Cheesecake Factory and she loved it at home too. Great recipe!
