This is a family favorite

Top Review by Darling76

This was a great chicken dish! My family really enjoyed it. I was a little skeptical when I saw the ingredients, cumin, garlic,tyme and Lemon? It was great! The lemon flavor was subtle not overpowering as some lemon chicken can be. I would describe the flavor as savory. I cooked bone-in, skin removed chicken breast exactly as instructed. I removed the chicken from the pan and tossed some cooked Penne pasta in the sauce and then served the chicken on a bed of the sauced noodles. The kids loved it and my husband gave me a thumbs up. Thanks for a great recipe!
