This is one of my 6 year old's favorite meals. He has requested that I make it more often. If you like the flavor of lemon, you will probably like this dish. I use whole wheat thin spaghetti to make it even more healthy. *Update* 2-10-10. I made this last night using shrimp instead of the chicken. It was pretty good as well. Instead of baking for 30 minutes, I boiled the shrimp and marinade in a pot for 5 minutes (until shrimp turned pink). I also added a little paprika to the marinade.
