    Roo1979's Note:

    This isn't a "traditional" German recipe, but I got it from a German woman who invented it. This recipe uses legs, but you can use any part of the chicken you want. This recipe is also good with any white fish (I used halibut). I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

      This recipe turned out great! I made 4 boneless chicken breasts and used about 1 cup olive oil and 1 cup lemon juice, and it was the perfect recipe for a nice dinner! I will definately be making this again!

      OH DEAR! unless you like eating with a sour face pucker face AVOID THIS RECIPE. This is truely a meal for those who like a very tart acidic taste. I found it too overwhelming. Although I have not done this, the recipe may taste better by reducing the acid content, maybe 1 cup Lemon Juice, 1 cup Olive Oil and one cup Chicken Stock. I will not be making this again though.

      Great Receipe. It was easy to make, and my family loved it. I used garlic powder instead of real garlic, but still tasted very good. Thanks for the recipe.
