I make this recipe all the time use only juice of 1/2 lemon try adding about 1 tspn each of cumin and "7" spice or allspice. I turn the broiler on for the last 20-15 minutes until all the lemon juice evaporates. Read More

Very simple and pure dish. Excellent! This is not another one of those boring recipes that calls for tons of cheese and canned creamy soups for flavor. I will make this weekly. Thanks!:) Read More

I love this dish. Although I cut my potatoes into thick (about 3/4" thick) and then fry them until a little dark golden brown. While I am frying the potatoes I boil the chicken in water. After the potatoes are all fried. I place them on the bottom of the baking dish place the chicken on top. I add the lemon juice garlic olive oil and some broth from the chicken to the dish. Along with the salt & pepper I do add the 7 spice to it and then broil for about 5 minutes. It's so yummy!! Read More

I'm surprised more people didn't emphasize how important it is to marinate this dish. I seasoned with salt white pepper cumin and all spice and I let it sit for a couple minutes before cooking. Next time I'll marinate with the lemon juice and olive for more flavor. I used chicken legs and the chicken was tender and juicy but cooked a lot faster than the instructions stated. Read More

I've made this dish a couple times now and it's definitely one of our favorites. We love the tangy flavor of the chicken & potatoes but 1 whole cup of lemon juice is way too much for our taste. I now only use 1/2 cup. I've made this using either fresh lemon or 100% juice from concentrate and it has turned out great both times. The recipe is tasty as-is but this last time I made it I also added 1/4 tsp oregano & 1/4 tsp thyme to the seasonings and we really loved the additional flavor. This is a keeper & a repeater in our house. Thank you for the great recipe!:) Read More

I've made this many times and it's always good. My favorite variation is to use half sweet potatoes and half white potatoes. Warning: bone-in chicken comes out moist and delicious boneless breasts come out dry. Read More

That sure was easy to prepare alright! Baked it longer than required because my husband loves his chicken very well done. Could have used more garlic and salt but I say that with most recipes. Loved it thanks! Read More

Delicious! I added a bit of cumin and thyme and doubled the garlic. It was great with steamed green beans - we'll be having this again. Read More
