Recipe by Karen From Colorado

Great lemon flavored chicken recipe. Serve with the onions for more flavor. A bit tart and very tender. 8 hours is marinade time.

Perfect recipe for my husband who just found out he has gallstones . . . it was a huge hit tonight . . . even our picky boys like it . . . I did add thinly sliced shallots for more flavor.
