    A delicious way to prepare chicken that any "lemon pepper" chicken seasoning doesn't come close to. Be aware: this recipe serves many.

      I liked the overall idea so I ran with it. I sauteed the onions in butter with a little garlic first instead of boiling it with the liquids. After the onions were translucent I then added lemon juice (1/2 cup instead of 1/4), the zest of one lemon, and chicken stock (which the recipe says add stock, but it's not in the ingredient list. I used 1/2 cup). I brought it to a boil then poured it over the chicken. I added fresh lemon slices. In a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes, they were a bit overcooked. I should have used a temperature probe. I drained the liquid, onions and lemons into a pan and reduced it. I added a little cornstarch to thicken it a bit. We spooned some of the sauce over the chicken and tossed the rest with cooked linguine. I was really surprised at how good it was. We like VERY lemony chicken though so my alterations are towards that flavor.

      Good. great flavor, I really enjoyed this. I didn't put the onions in it, we don't care for them. A recipe I would use again. Thanks.
