We all thought this turned out a bit bland. I marinated it for about 4 hours. I also cooked it in the microwave (in a round casserole for 8 minutes - did not rotate because our microwave had a turntable). I do not think I would make this again because I have other OAMC marinade-type recipes to try.

Had 2 EXTREMELY large boneless/skinless chicken breasts from Costco. Prepared marinade as posted -- which didn't look like enough liquid to coat the meat -- but did. (For more chicken, you may need to increase the marinade amounts) I placed the almost thawed breasts in the zipper bag and allowed to remain in (cool) room temperature for about 1 hour, to completely thaw. Baked for about 30 min -- due to size. They were so tender and tasty but too much for 1 meal. I have almost 1 entire breast to use in salad for lunch. Thanks Stacy, for an easy new prep.

This was fantastic! I put the chicken in to marinate when I went home at lunch, then at dinner baked it and served it over rice. It was so simple, but so delicious. The lemon juice really made it special. Thanks!
