The chicken was delicious and the texture was perfect after just 4 hours. The seasonings mix well and add a lot of flavor.

I loved how moist this chicken turned out. My husband is not a big fan of chicken but he loved the so I will definitely be making it more often!

This was a good recipe, but the chicken turned out a little dry. It was good dipped in the sauce, though.

MY REVIEW

Delicious! Chicken was moist, tender and full of flavor. The lemon called for was just enough, not overwhelming. In fact, the sauce was great with the chicken and enhanced the nuttly flavor of the brown rice. This recipe is a keeper.
