    easy to make, can even one-pot it. rice is a good side as the sauce just melts into it.

    Delicious! I made it for my boyfriend and I and we both loved it! Ended up using 1 1/2 lemons and it was perfect! I will definitely be making this again. Quick and easy, and the guided recipe was a great help!

    I subbed chicken legs and it tasted great! I do think thighs would be better suited and plan to try them next time!

    The chicken was pretty good! Note: In place of salt, I used Lowry's Seasoned Salt. Also: In addition to covering the chicken with the sauce, I covered the chicken with lemon slices prior to placing in the oven. Side note: The house smelled so good while I was cooking this! 🥰

    Had to substitute dry dill but still turned out great. Served with rice. Was a hit with the family. Will make again.

    Some of the best chicken I've made all month! The only thing I did differently was pulling the skin back and seasoning the chicken itself. Not sure why the recipe left that out, it's super important if you want the seasoning to actually get into the chicken and not just the skin. Regardless, this was an excellent recipe and I'm adding it to the monthly menu. Served it with Edamame and Pearl Couscous.

    Everyone in my family loved the dish. My 20 year old son even made it for his college roommates! The fresh dill, lemon and garlic is a wonderful combination. Fry pan to oven ensures that the chicken is properly cooked and looks appealing.

    Knock out of park fantastic. The chicken was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I used lots of extra dill at the end it was still delicious. Also, I don’t have a pan that I can transfer to the oven so I preheated a Pyrex baking dish And when the chicken finished browning, I transferred the chicken and the drippings into the hot dish. Then I used that same stovetop pan to make my rice, so every drop of goodness went to use. Another one for the weekday dinner rotation!

    Too lemony for me and tough but maybe that is due to the chicken

    Great! I don’t know where my dill went so I used dried dill and it worked out great! I would cook in the oven 10 minutes more though.
