Very tasty! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and marinated overnight.

This came out moist and pleasant. I'm not sure that the marinade added as much flavor as I would have liked, but it was good.

This recipe was a hit in our house! I am so glad we tried it. I had my sister pick something for us to make for dinner and was kind of leery of the lemon chicken because normally I'm not a lemon fan but this surprised me and I loved it! We started it on the grill and had to finish it in the oven due to flare ups but it still turned out great! When we put it in the oven we dumped the remaining marinade on top and it was awesome! I made the recipe as listed except I didn't have quite the 2/3 cup of lemon juice. I used the juice of 4 fresh squeezed lemons. A great recipe that will make your family wanting more! We didn't have a piece leftover!

This is a variation of one of my own recipes, so I was already prepared to really enjoy it. Had to cut it down for two, very easy to do, and I did ours in the oven. Excellent.
