Quick Lemon Garlic Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 5mins

Yes, this is quick to put together, I guess that is where quick comes from, but then you have to marinate it for hours or over night. BUT it is worth it ;-) I serve it with cucumber tomatoes and chips.

Made this last evening with tenderloins. I marinated them for about 5 hours which was long enough. Cooked them at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. They were super moist and super lemony. . . but the paprika didn't work with the rest of the flavors for us. Matter of fact, DH didn't eat it (and I felt horrible, as the only other thing he won't touch is curry). That said, I did eat mine and I am saving the leftover to make into chicken salad for lunch tomorrow - and I bet the lemon flavor will do well in that dish! Thanks for posting and YES it was quick and easy.
