Crisp Lemon Chicken

READY IN: 36mins
Top Review by Robyn

This was just ok for us, it was VERY tart and lemony and I doubled the sugar. It was lovely to look at and I do like the method for cooking the chicken but for us it was just overpoweringly lemony. I pounded the breasts to make them flat and served over rice, I actually do want to make this again but I am going to sub orange for the lemon. This was in NO WAY bad, just very very lemony which I am sure some will love.
