  • Preheat the oven broiler. Fit a roasting pan with a lightly greased wire rack. Fill pan with water to just below the level of the rack.

  • Remove chicken from marinade, arrange on the wire rack, and season with Italian seasoning and seasoned salt. Transfer remaining marinade to a saucepan, and bring to a boil.

  • Broil chicken 10 minutes in the preheated oven, basting frequently with the boiled marinade. Turn chicken, season again with Italian seasoning and seasoned salt, and continue broiling and basting 10 minutes, or until well browned and juices run clear.

This is delicious! We made the following changes: We did not baste the chicken or cut it onto bite size pieces. It was wonderful! Not too sour at all. It had just the right tartness to really add to the italian seasoning. This is my new favorite! Read More

Did the recipe exactly like it said It was ok. Lemon had a strong taste. I marinated it over night and maybe that did it? Loved the method it was cooked but it was messy with the water in the pan. Messy when I had to flip the chicken and pulling the pan out of the oven. That chicken would be really good maybe in a casserole dish where the lemon flavor would add to he dish. Read More

I didn't have time to marinade this for the full hour - the chicken marinated for about 40 minutes - and it still turned out delicious. The ingredients are things I keep in the kitchen at all times so this is a good last-minute dinner. I served it with couscous and salad. Read More

I really liked this recipe however I made some changes/additions for personal preferance. I increased the lemon juice to 3/4cup and added 3 minced garlic cloves to the marinade. I marinaded it for a hour in the fridge placed it on the broiler pan and added pepper to the seasoning. Turned out fantastic. Will make again. Read More

This was too sour for my taste but my 14 year old loved it. Be careful with the hot water in the pan as it can slosh out when basting the chicken. I would add some honey to the sauce if I made it again. Read More

Very tasty! The marinade didn't smell great at first but once it was in the oven it smelled really good. I did tweak it a little based on some other reviews and what I had on hand. I added 3 cloves of minced garlic and red pepper flakes. Quick and yummy! Read More

This was a nice quick and simple dish to make. I only marinated the chicken for 20 minutes and I am glad I did because if I did it for longer I think it would come out too sour. Read More
