    Easy and very tasty but prefer more seasoning for potatoes and more lemons used in the dish and juicing over top before baking

    amazing 😍 and hubby loved it... I'm not very much of a lemon person in my food but I didn't mind it for this 😋

    This was good, chicken was moist, I felt it needed a little extra time to completely cook the potatoes. At first I was going to rate it as a needing a bit more seasoning, but then realized I forgot to add cilantro to it at the end just def touch up the seasonings at the end

    It turned out great! My fiancé was a skeptic of lemon chicken, but this recipe made her a believer!

    Delish, easy cook, easy clean. Added additional seasoning before placing in oven; garlic powder, paprika, thyme, rosemary. Leaving some lemon to squeeze once plated was a good call.

    It was good especially the potatoes. Instead of roasting the lemons I would squeeze the lemon juice directly on the chicken about halfway because the chicken had no lemon taste at all.

    it was pretty easy to make and it was very tasty. I accompanied with black beans and cilantro lime rice. They all complemented each other.

    The whole family loved it! I loved it because it was delicious and so easy. I substituted dry Herbs De Provence in place of cilantro and used a jelly roll pan instead of a roasting pan. It turned out great!
