"I will use a little less lemon juice next time. I baked this in a small casserole dish and the juices kept it very moist."

"I agree about the tanginess, next time I would definitely cut down the lemon juice. Other than that, it smelled amazing while baking, tasted so moist, and the gravy recipe helped alot! I added some cream and sugar to the gravy to cut down the lemon flavour."

"This did turn out moist but WAY to tangy for my taste buds. That's a lot of lemon juice."
