“This recipe is an awesome alternative to a red barbeque sauce for chicken. It was a neighborhood favorite during summer when I was growing up. Submitted in memory of Ruth Karahan who originally had the recipe and passed away in 2004.”

A wonderful marinade. Really penetrates the meat with lemon flavor. I substituted Splenda for sugar & used garlic-olive-oil. Marinated a cut-up chicken for 3 hours or more (overnight even better) and baked it at 350 F on a rack pan in the oven -- 45 min for small pieces, 55 min for big pieces. Easy and fabulous.

This is an awesome recipe! I increased the flavor even more by adding the zest from the lemons I juiced and adding several more cloves of garlic. I marinaded it for about 2 hours. Wow! It was SO yummy and SO moist. I served it with rice pilaf and corn on the cob. What a fantastic barbeque!!!

AWESOME......I doubled this recipe for 4 lbs of chicken breasts. Oh, I also used olive oil, but that was the only change. Used half to marinate; the rest to baste while grilling. My husband doesn't care for lemon flavour, and he said "THIS IS THE BEST CHICKEN I'VE EVER HAD" My daughter, son-in-law, and 6 young grandchildren also loved it. Thanks for this great recipe. Will continue making this again and again.
