    Jen T's Note:

    This is one of my adopted recipes. I have made this for the second time today, 24th September 2005. I used 2 large thick chicken breasts which I sliced through horizontally to make them thinner. The potatoes I cut into thin wedges. I found the secret to this dish is to use a shallow baking dish (mine was about 1/2" deep). The first time I made this I used a dish which was too deep!!! In the original recipe it said to use 1/2 cup olive oil......I have changed this to 1/4 cup and feel this is better. The original recipe also said to serve with crusty bread or pita bread, however I served with steamed broccoli and carrots with a cheese sauce. Thanks to the original poster for sharing this recipe.

      This really didn't do it for me. The lemon taste was very, very strong and it took way longer than 20 minutes to cook. We couldn't eat much of it because it was like eating a lemon.

      I added some sliced white onion, with some brine cured ripe green olives. The lemon I increased to 1/2 cup. Very delicious!
