So sweet, yummy and easy, made with lemon curd! I also added half a lemons juice, just to give little more zing and cut the sweetness. Absolutely the best lemon chicken ever!

We loved this!! Very simple to make, and had excellent flavor! I wanted to make just to use up some lemon curd I had in the fridge - did not expect to enjoy it as much as we did - a definite keeper. No changes to recipe - used chives which were great addition for both color and abit of flavor. Thanks for posting!!

My Mom made this for me on my last trip to Cali in March. I just made it for the family tonite. Great! Quick, easy and yummy.
