      Way, way too lemony. I ate about half of my meal and vowed never to eat anything with lemon in it again. I marinated overnight... Bad idea! I imagine this recipe could be great with a little tweaking.

      Best lemon chicken ever! I started with frozen chicken breasts, marinated until they thawed, then cut them into chunks. After cutting them up, I marinated them more - a total of about 24 hours. The brown sugar at the end adds kind of a sweet & sour flavor. LOVED it and will make again and again!

      Not very successful for me. I'm not sure what I did wrong but the flour made the chicken very gooey so if I made this recipe again, I'd give the flour a miss I think.
