Greek-Style Lemon-Garlic Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
I love celebrating my Greek heritage with this super simple and scrumptious Sunday dinner. Prep time is a breeze and the ingredient list is relatively short for such a flavorful one-dish meal. Each time I make this I'm transported back to my ya-ya, who gave me the special honor of squeezing the lemons! —Lisa Renshaw, Kansas City, Missouri
