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."
"Delicious & easy. My family gives it thumbs up. The light lemon flavor is tops. Will definitely make again."
"My family loves this recipe. The chicken is very tender and juicy."
"Too much citrus flavor and not enough garlic. I don't think I'll make this again."
"We really like this moist, mildly seasoned chicken. I usually serve it with Bacon Chive Potato salad - both the are great served warm or cold, so they make the perfect leftovers.I recommend using the seasoned bread crumb recipe (also on this site). It really takes the flavor up a notch."
"This was so fast and easy! Will definitely make it again."
