    Amber of AZ's Note:

    This recipe is one of those "gee that looks good" as you flip through your cookbooks looking for meal ideas. When you actually do make it, the recipe, to me, is a wonderful treat. I found this recipe in a Weight Watchers cookbook. 6 points

      This was pretty darn awesome, it was so easy - the hardest part was skinning the chicken thighs (that is what I had on hand because they are my favorite ). I served it over some plain couscous, but will probably use either rice or noodles nest time, because there will defiantly be a next time. I used Meyer lemons (first time I have ever used them) and they were really tangy but in a good way. It took about 10 minutes longer then stated, but I am sure that is my oven. I will use a mix of breasts and thighs when I make it for my family. Thank you, Amber of AZ for wonderful recipe.
