Family Favorite, "Chicken Swan", with two dots over "a" in Swan. Originally from a family friend, Anne Suomi, who is Finnish. The entire family loves this recipe. I tried to "pinch it" but no one exactly replicates this and I think the lemon juice makes it. I've changed this to all fresh ingredients as it seems to taste better that way.
