MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 14, 2013

"This was a great recipe. I thought the citrus helped keep the chicken moist. I added a little more garlic, too."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 27, 2011

"This used way too much citrus and was kind of sour. It needs some herbs to flavor it as it was kind of blah. I won't make it again."
