    This recipe is great! Sometimes I grate a couple of cloves of garlic into the marinade and it adds an extra kick of flavour. We also fillet the chicken breasts to make them thinner; about three fillets per breast. This helps the marinade really get in there and the chicken cooks faster. Yum!

    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!
