    It smelled really good but was pretty bland. Might experiment next time to add onions.

    I made this for my partner and my brother, and they absolutely loved it. My partner reports that the crispy lemon slices are the best part. That said, he tried some both with and without the fresh cilantro and reported that he fresh cilantro really took an already good dish up to another level of delicious. I'm particularly pleased to have discovered this recipe because by my analysis it would also be Whole30 approved.
    i didn't have oven so I just cooked it in the pan on medium high heat for 15mins and added a little bit of cajun, I turned out great! quick and easy. will be adding in my fave list

    Easy recipe.. just make sure to have all your veggies pre cut before you start making the chicken.

    Awesome! I had boneless skinless thighs, only had lemon juice, and used new potatoes. It turned out great! I’ll definitely be making it again.

    It turned out okay but the potatoes were a little bitter which may have been my mistake since I used russets.

    Oh my god, simply fantastic! I followed the recipe exactly but with four thighs instead of six..... unbelievably easy and DELICIOUS!

    Loved it. The Dutch oven was a great idea. Two lemons was maybe one too many, but all else was so good. The cilantro is a great finishing touch

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

    Easy to follow directions!!
    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!

    I used a dutch oven instead of a roaster pan and it turned out great.

    Wonderful! Used a cast iron pan to cook and added peppers for color.

    Divine! We will make this again and again. Used a large cast iron skillet but otherwise followed the recipe. Yum!

    So yummy and easy! I used extra lemon

    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.

    Definitely will make again

    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.

    Delicious! My two teens and I devoured it!

    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.

    Great! Didn’t have to cook additional 30 min-it was more like 20 in my oven
