Reviews for Honey Lemon Chicken
"Excellent taste! Loved it and will make it again!"
"Loved this! The marinade was quick to whip up & the chicken was full of flavor!"
"This recipe was outstanding! I made it a couple weeks ago and I'm making it again tonight. My husband and the kids raved about it (ages 2, 3, and 6)! Used the leftovers for grilled chicken salad the next day. I could eat this every day and just change the side dishes I'd use! So yummy!"
"I had recently bought a lot of chicken breasts and used this recipe as a freezer meal. I prepared the marinade in a ziplock bag, added the chicken breasts and froze. We pulled it out the other day to defrost (in the marinade) and then put them on the grill. The flavor of the marinade was delicious! Not too overpowering, but very good. I will definately be using this one again!"
"Great recipe for chicken on the grill. My husband and I loved it!"
"SO easy to prepare that night before. Quick to grill. Tastes wonderful!"
