      We enjoyed these moist and delicious chicken legs. I followed the recipe as is except that I only used 3 lemons sliced on top of the chicken legs. The only problem I encountered was that the chicken was not cooked through in 45 minutes. I don't think the legs were particularily large but they took over an hour to be done and they really don't get very brown although the lemons do pick up some colour. The juices that are left in the pan are exceptionally good. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe.
