This is a recipe my mother-in-law gave me. It is fairly simple and tastes great. I have used both lemon and lime juice when making this and either one works well.

This was tasty-- and resulted in tender chicken. My only change would be to omit the water. With the liquid from the lemon juice, and the juices from the chicken- no other liquid is needed. I ended up with chicken braising in the water/lemon juice. It would have been nice to have a lemon/garlic sauce out of the chicken juices at the end.
