      I made this using a family pack of chicken legs. I had to increase cooking time because the legs were so big. These turned out wonderful and they were so moist. The recipe is easy and quick. The fresh squeezed lemon was great and not over-powering like the bottled stuff. It reheated pretty great (I made them for the Sabbath) but they were better fresh out of the oven. I will definitely make them again. I did use more garlic just because I love it. Thanks for the recipe.

      OH, my! I'd been wanting to make this for almost a week, and due to some stuff life threw us, had the chicken marinated, but had to freeze it, and then thaw it to be cooked. Therefore, it marinated about 1 1/2 days before it was frozen. I made it exactly as directly, and since I had to thaw it, and it was still frozen in spots, I cooked it a bit longer (probably about 1 more turn, or 19-15 minutes longer). Boy, was it ever exceptional! It was moist, crispy, and totally infused with the garlic and lemon flavors. We had it simply, with corn and biscuts, and I can hardly wait to take the leftovers to work for lunch tomorrow. I thought this was incredibly easy (we broiled it rather than grilled it, as I'd thought we would). Just wonderful, Mirj! DH said "spectacular" when I asked him what he thought. He's already asked for a repeat this weekend - the hallmark of a wonderful recipe to us!
