I love lemon myrtle and the flavor of lemon and it just works well with chicken.

I enjoyed this chicken very much! The lemon flavor was outstanding and all of the indredients really complimented each other well- especially the wine! The only difference I made was that I used lemon zest since I couldn't find lemongrass and I used a boneless, skinless chicken breast instead of a whole chicken (just cooking for me tonight)! Thanks for sharing! Made for Fall PAC 2007.
