This makes a lovely, lemony chicken. It bakes in one dish, and comes out juicy and tender.

What an easy recipe! I used whole boneless chicken breasts, and covered the casserole dish with foil for the first 40 minutes of baking time. I also topped the chicken with olive oil for more moistness. I served the chicken with garlic dill potatoes. Read More

This was okay--you gotta make sure to get it before it dries out--I think I'll cover it next time until the last few minutes for browning. Read More

I made this with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Deeeelish! The curry powder makes this dish special. The whole house smelled great. Read More

WOW! This chicken was wonderful! Very easy to make, and a definite crowd-pleaser! I used some of the previous reviews to tweak it slightly: I used boneless/skinless breasts (6), and I added 6 TBSP corn syrup to make it a little sweeter, as the lemon is very tart. I cooked it for about 35 minutes covered, and uncovered for 10. When the chicken was cooked, I transferred the juices to a saucepan, and thickened it over med/high heat with some cornstarch. I served it with a simple California salad and rolls to sop up the extra sauce. Absolutely wonderful, this is on my weekly menu for sure! Read More

This preparation of this recipe was so simple that I we were all surprised at how wonderful it tasted. (I used chicken thighs and baked them in an oven bag) My husband works for a chicken company so we eat chicken all the time, but this recipe really stands out from the rest. It's now become a family favourite! Read More

This was a very simple recipe but had a TON of flavor! My family all liked it even two teenagers:) I did brush on some olive oil after adding all ingredients as someone else suggested. Also I covered it with foil until the last ten minutes. It came out very juicy doing it this way. I will surely make this one again. Perfect for busy weeknights! Yum Read More

With all the lemon and garlic it tasted similar to fish. A good side with pesto pasta. Read More
