Oh boy, what a HIT this was! I just made two pans of this for a summer party of over a hundred people and everyone RAVED about this! The chicken was SO tender and lemony, but not overpowering so. I think next time I'll deglaze with some white wine or sherry, then the lemon juice and so on, just to give it a little "kick". It was amazing! A "keeper" for sure! Thank you for sharing such a delicious recipe! xo LA :-)
