    This smelled divine when baking and the chicken was very tender. We didn't feel that the flavor of the marinade permeated enough into the chicken. I think next time I will try marinading it longer, or perhaps using skinless chicken breasts.

    Great flavor- not too peppery or *too* any ingredient really, grilled them to perfection. This is going into the rotation of reciped to repeat.

    This was wonderful! I followed the recipe but used boneless/skinless breasts. It came out perfect. Thanks so much for posting!

    This was really really delicious. We used 3 bone-in skin-on chicken breasts and halved the marinade, which was just the right amount. I also marinated it in a storage bag to make the clean up easier. I cooked the chicken for 35 minutes and it was perfectly done. It did make the oven smoke quite a bit because of the fat from the skin dripping on the roasting pan, but it was well worth it. I wouldn't say that the flavor was overwhelmingly lemon peppery, but it was very tender and really tasty. The skin probably had the most flavor and was nice and crispy due to the higher cooking temperature. We will definitely be making this again. It's nice to have an indoor chicken cooking recipe for the winter time. Thanks!
