Reviews for Lemon Chicken Bake
"Really great and really easy"
"My daughter was asking me to find a lemon chicken dish that was similar to one she had tried on vacation. I found this one...and OH MY! This dish is positively wonderful. The chicken had incredible flavor and was extremely moist. My daughter loved it; I loved it; the rest of the family loved it! Everyone went back for a second serving. This will be a recipe I will make over and over again. I served this dish with couscous mixed with zucchini, red bell pepper, and yellow squash. Yum!"
"Really juicy and I didn't have a clove of garlic so I replaced it with garlic salt. The taste was perfect. My whole family loved it! I will definitely use this recipe again."
"Tasty & easy!- Theresa"
"Juicy tender and tasty. The whole family loved it. Being gluten free I altered the recipe slightly, replacing the bread crumb dip with a garbanzo flour dip.... It worked and I will make it again."
