    I have made this chicken 3 times in the past month. It was such a success and my brothers kept asking for it again and again! The leftovers, if there was any, did not even last 24hr! This recipe has made it into the Family’s Favorite Recipe Book! The one thing we did differently was grilled the chicken on the grill outside because I have a Grill Dad, and it made it all the Yummlier!

    It was a bit too lemony for me, but really easy to make, great with sweet potato.

    Delicious! My family really liked this recipe, even our very picky eater. He requested that we make this weekly he loves it so. The second time around I used 1.5 large lemons as I think 2 large lemons is too much.

    Made it today for dinner and both, my husband and I liked it. I will certainly keep this recipe. The only change I made was using a mix of ground black pepper and freshly grated lemon zest. I had to do that because we were out of lemon pepper seasoning.

    Turned out very well! I added Thyme to the marinade. The chicken had a very good flavor and was moist.

    Nice and juicy, but just a little too lemony for my tastes. I may play with the recipe a little bit to find the right balance for my taste-buds. A good start though! Thanks for sharing!

    So easy & so yummy! Followed the directions and after I set the chicken aside to drain I then made a roux out of the pan dripping for gravy-soooo good!

    Very tasty! Didn’t have time to marinate it but despite that, it was still packed with great lemon flavor!

    SO easy and juicy! I let it marinate for about 7 hours

    Was marinated overnight. Very good lemon flavor. I used bone in skin on thighs so took longer to cook. Served with oven roasted green beans that I sprinkled with good amount of lemon juice too! Used my cast iron pan for chicken. Will make again with skinless, boned chicken breasts just to see the difference.
