      Very nice! The lemon and garlic really bring out the flavor of the chicken. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you very much for sharing this lovely (and vampire preventing) recipe with us.

      I'm 86.4% sure my New Year's resolution to diet is working. It's true because I've significantly cut back. That's a fact. Yes it is and I know it to be so because I cut this recipe in half. Half is half, right, even if I did eat it all in one sitting. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.

      I just made this tonight. I halved the recipe and it was enough for my family of three. It was worth the time to make in my opinion. There was a lot of liquid and I think that the amount of liquid I had would have been enough for 8 thighs. The thighs were nice and most. Flavor was on the zesty side as the lemon gave is a subtle kick and each bit had a nice garlic flavor. I served with a sweet potato and asparagus.
