Great recipe. The chicken was moist and tasty. Next time I will season under the skin as well.
This is awesome!!!! It was loved by all. I will definitely make this again.
My kids just loved this. Definitely will be making this again.
This is a true Simple and Delicious 5-ingredient recipe! It's amazing how good it tastes with so few ingredients! I used a fresh lemon for the juice, which I think is much better, and made a gravy from the pan drippings using Wondra flour.
My 14-year-old son made this for a family dinner. It was absolutely delicious.
