I didn't have fresh lemons so I omitted the peel, but it was tasty without it. It was so easy to prepare. My young children thought it was too tangy but the adults liked it. Sometimes chicken can look really white and bland but with paprika on top, it gave the chicken a nice color and appearance.
My husband isn't crazy about lemon so I used lime instead and added a little Jamaican jerk seasoning to the recipe. It was very tasty! The next time he goes out of town, I'll try the lemon version for my son and me. Thanks!
I left out the lemon peel and added dill. Next time I would use less oregano, and more onion, they were delicious! I would probably add garlic, too. I used cornstarch t the end to thicken up the sauce. I loved it!!
I'm visiting a girlfriend in another city and I talked her into trying this. We loved it ... making a few modifications along the way...omitted salt and added both garlic and some Italian seasoning. Mmmmmm!
This is a family favorite. I usually leave the peel out just because I just don't have it available. My son even requested it for his birthday dinner!! It's a great meal when camping. Super easy!
I do almost exactly the same thing, except that I will fry the chicken in a pan instead of baking. You don't need any add'l oils; just use a good non-stick pan. As the chicken cooks on each side, take it out, slice it thin, then put it back in to finish cooking. This makes a great 10-minute meal.
I have a hard time eating chicken - I just don't really like it - but this recipe is GREAT!! It's going to become one of my standard meals and I'm going to "write home" about it. ; ) Oh, I'll probably do more onions next time but that's just because I love onions.
Followed exact recipe. I thought it was OK, my husband thought it lacked flavor, my 10 yr.old thought it was too lemony and my 6 yr.old ate it without commentary. I even used fresh oregano -disappointed because it's flavor was lost. Overall, disappointing!
As with anything you marinate, I found that to truely get the whole lemony experience with this recipe you NEED to pierce the chicken breasts all over so the lemon really gets into the meat! Very nice recipe for something different!
This was pretty good. Husband thought it tasted like fish because of the lemony taste. I zested the lemon peel and added capers. I agree with a previous commenter that I would add some chicken broth next time to the lemon juice mixture.
i added 1/2 cup mandarin oranges w/juice - i don't think it really added or took away -- i was surprised at how nicely the chicken tasted like lemon but not overpowering -- i'm glad i have leftovers for lunch this week!
I browned the chicken first to give it a bit of color (I was afraid it might taste boiled! probably wouldn't have. :-)) Added garlic and cut back on some of the lemon juice and used a bit more wine. reduced the sauce a bit before serving - delicious! I liked the added peel very much. Nice recipe!
I thought it was tangy not really lemony. My husband loved it, but he loves lemonade. I didn't put the lemon peel in and probably more spices. I also put in some baby carrots, though I don't think they added anything and they didn't cook in the hour. I made this recipe because I had lemons.
I didn't want to wait an hour to eat so I took one of the pieces of chicken and cooked it on my Foreman Grill after marinating it and it was fabulous! The rest I stuck in the oven as directed and it turned out great, too. Instead of lemon peel though I would suggest using lemon zest.
Loved the easy ADVANCE prep- setting it up to marinate in the morning and then popping it in the oven at the end of the day! Enjoyed by everyone. Flavorful and no-one missed that it wasn't fatty. A bit on the acidy side- next time i might omit the white wine vinegar and use white wine instead.
It sounds like there is a little bit too much oregano for my taste. With the lemon, the suggestion of adding capers sounds appealing to me. Will definitely try it, by using a little less lemon, but after tasting, I might add more.
This will be a lunch dish because my husband scoffs at anything but fried chicken! I love lemon and like thyme with chicken. My garden herbs are thyme and parsley and basil so will use these instead of oregano.
