Top Review by Pinkytz

I really wanted to love this but there was just too much lemon for my taste. I think I will tryi it again without the sliced lemon in the bottom or just 1/2 lemon sliced It also could use more salt and some herbs in the oil mixture. I t did smell wonderful while baking and the chicken was moist adn done perfectly in 50 minutes as stated. Well it seems I was too hasty in my rating. DH didn't eat it til the next day warmed up and he loved it. I liked it better the second day too. The lemon seemed to have mellowed a bit and I will definitely try this again with some minor adjustments.
