      Unfortunately the weather in our area didn't cooperate with me today, so I ended up cooking this in my grill pan on the stove-top and these turned out excellent. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs that were marinated for 8 hours in the refrigerator. After the chicken was cooked through, I sliced up 2 more lemons and placed them under the broiler for 5 minutes. It was so good that it will be in regular rotation in our house during the summer. Thanks so much Catherine! Made for Spring 2013 PAC!

      I'll start by saying that I ate 3 big (from Costco) thighs and had to force myself not to have a fourth! I made the marinade after dinner last night and tucked the chicken into the fridge so it got the full 24 hrs. The flavor is delicious and compelling, it's a sultry siren that keeps beckoning you back for another bite and then another. I used Meyer lemon because I had them but I'm sure that regular lemons would be just as good. The BBQ was my choice cooking but it started raining and I ended putting them under the broiler. They still came out tender, very moist and amazingly delicious. We ordered a side of beef today but I think I'll give my portions to DH and just keep making this recipe!

      This is a quick, easy way to cook chicken that is absolutely amazing. I followed the recipe exactly, and cooked this on my indoor grill, rotating every 5 minutes. The chicken was so flavorful and moist- there were no leftovers!
