What a tasty chicken! I usually just use a dry rub, then baste with the juices, but THIS brought the chicken to a whole new level! I used a few more garlic cloves than the recipe states and I only had Oregano, but other than that, I followed the recipe pretty much as is. At first, I thought the chicken would be TOO lemony, but after sampling a taste, I found it to be just right :) Given the specific flavour profile of this chicken, I ended up making the rest of the meal around it - lemony garlic Greek potatoes, and a Greek rice pilaf ^_^ Will make this chicken again...and again, and again...!!!

Sorry but I didn't like the chicken..... I don't know if maybe I didn't slice the lemon slices thin enough but the chicken had a bitter taste that I didn't was a little bland for my taste....
