SO tangy and zesty. My kids loved it!Marinated for an hour. Then I baked it in the oven, with juice, and it made it very moist. Also, I topped with crumbled feta cheese during the last 10 minute...

It had a decent lemon flavor but the dijon mustard was so overpowering. I gave it an extra star because it was so easy but I won't be making this again. thanks anyway!
