Reviews for Tangy Citrus Chicken
"Did not care for this. Turns out, sauce did not *stick* to chicken. Ended up with a gluey, yucky mess of wet ingredients hardening in dish. Sorry TOH. Will stick with what I know. J."
"Ours do not turn the nice golden color shown in the picture and the sauce did not thicken at all. We cooked at 350 for nearly 45 minutes and chicken ended up tough but clearly fully cooked."
"This recipe comes from one of my fave cookbooks called Kosher By Design. I make it at least one shabbat a month. I use the whole can of lemonaide, and I do not cover it. As well, I am generous with the spices."
"So easy & tasty! I omitted the sage since I had none on hand and substituted marjoram for the thyme.~ Theresa"
"This is sooo juicy and refreshing. The leftovers make great chicken salad as well."
