I thought this had good flavor, but the liquid dried up before the chicken was done. The second batch I made, I baked at a lower temp, but still the liquid was gone. Next time I make this I'll double the marinade ingredients.

Superb. Deeply, intensely lemony. I used cut up pieces of chicken breast fillets. Very easy to prepare, and very easy to cook. I feel inspired to stock up the freezer! Reviewed for Pick A Chef, Fall 2007.
