      Evelyn, this was wonderful. So easy to prepare, very much a fix and forget dish. The flavour was perfectly balanced between the lemon and the herbs and the garlic, a real keeper!

      Very nice flavor, although I will marinate overnight next time. I had no fresh lemons so used bottled lemon juice and did this up on the bbq. Pulled the skin off chicken,the outside was nicely flavored, but lost a little flavoring on the inside of the chicken. Also, I added pepper and lemon zest to the marinade, because it is not stated in recipe. I figured that was right.

      I've been looking for a Greek chicken recipe that tastes like the Greek diner down the street does it...I've found it! I followed Evelyn's suggestion and did it on the grill and this was superb...I've already shared it with friends who like chicken this way. I followed E's instructions to the T, make sure you use fresh lemons! I placed the squeezed out lemons on the grill just for aroma to tease my neighbors...it worked!
