MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 13, 2012

"I think the quantities may be incorrect. The recipe calls for 1/4 cup lemon juice which is way too much, especially with the lemon peel. The recipe was very sour. One tablespoon of lemon juice would probably be enough. Rather than revise, I would try a different Aloha Chicken recipe."
