    The lemon and garlic does indeed shine through on this recipe though... I sliced my chicken in strips rather than chunks. I honestly couldn't imagine marinating for overnight or 24 hours, my strips were 'white' and pickled after 4 hours. I had a hard time cooking them since they looked ready to eat before being skewered, Overall though, it was very light and clean tasting

    The taste of this was wonderful! I was a little worried about the lemon juice and the marinating time. I started my marinade before I left for work. I grilled these for dinner. (Marinating time about 11 hours) I would not recommend marinating for that long, as some of my chicken cubes were cooked from the acid in the lemon. I'd marinate about 5 or 6 hours next time. The garlic was perfect!! These would be wonderful in a pita! Thanks for sharing. Made for PRMR tag.

    I was concerned that marinating the chicken for so long might make it mushy. Not to worry! The texture was fine, and we really liked the garlic-lemon flavor. I appreciate the instructions for making this in the oven, since it was much too cold to grill. Thanks for posting! Made for Zaar Stars tag.
