Had 2 boneless chicked breasts for DH and me for dinner -- and WHAT to do that was different !! Found you recipe in time to defrost the chicken AND to marinate for 30 minutes, before baking in the oven, at 400 degrees, - which was done in 25 minutes. We love lemon flavors in many things -- always crisp and fresh. I just put the marinated breasts in a small casserole. It even made Stove-Top Stuffing taste like more than a Thursday night meal. Thanks for posting.
This is a really outstanding recipe ~ outstanding for me because it was very simple to make, & yet it jazzed up the breasts nicely. I baked them--the breasts were large--in a 375 degree oven for a little more than 40 minutes! I'll certainly keep this recipe on hand! Many thanks!
Fast, easy, healthy - what more would you want?
Made for I Recommend Tag. This is wonderful chicken and has a bright lemon flavor. My DD couldn't stop raving about it. We used six boneless skinless thighs (my favorite piece of chicken) instead of breasts. The only change that I would make to this recipe next time I make it would be to add a little bit of salt to the marinade. Thanks for posting this Chef at Heart!
My BF and I liked the tanginess of the lemon with the sweetness of the brown sugar. I didn't have any chicken breasts so I used thighs and drumsticks... We like dark meat better anyway!!! The only other thing I did differently was add in about 1 TBS of lemon zest. Marinated for about 1hr and then grilled them on the BBQ... The skin crisped up so nice b/c of the sugar caramelizing... I spritzed it with a little more lemon juice right before serving... so yummy!!! Served it with some wild rice and a green salad for a quick and easy weeknight meal. Thanks for sharing!
Great simple chicken. I marinated the chicken for about an hour and then DH grilled them outside. Simple and tasty. Thanks Chef at Heart for a great way to prepare chicken.
