    I thought this recipe was very easy and quite tasty. I would recommend that you definately marinate chicken overnight to enhance the lemon flavor. The citrus makes for a light refreshing summer dish.

    Moist and delicious. Had fun with the skewer as I couldn't get the lemon on and it slipped and went thru my finger . Didn't have a bbq so it was done in an cast iron pan. Will make it again but with more chicken

    After reading the reviews, I decided to add the rest of the lemons to the marinade, and I'm glad I did because it added a deeper lemon flavor. I marinated close to 3 hours and grilled indoors, and the chicken was juicy and tender. Served with Hummus and green beans. Thank you! Made for CQ '17.

    This chicken is so delicious!! I marinated for about 2 hours and the flavors really soaked into the chicken. It was perfect skewered and grilled. Great flavor and very tender. I served the chicken on a bed of rice. Excellent! Thank you!
