      I am giving this a 4-star rating because my husband really liked it, but the taste wasn't really for me personally. It was VERY simple to make however!

      My dad made this for dinner. I really liked it because it was lemony and I like lemons.

      I thought it was good. Perhaps I grilled it a bit too hot--carmelized the lemon on the grill marks and that was a little bitter. Also on the whole, a bit too intensely lemony tart for my palate. I still think its a keeper but will fiddle with it a bit for the next for the next go around--slightly cooler temp with a longer grill time and maybe a touch of sugar to moderate the tartness. Still, a great concept--cinnamon on chicken who woulda thunk it!
