I like lemon chicken, but this recipe is a joke. I always try recipes as printed first and then alter to my tastes if necessary. By the time I alter this one it will barely resemble the original. There is far to much lemon zest. I would also replace the vinegar with white wine, reduce the amount of oregano, add some basil, garlic and about 1/4 cup of oil. I would then grill rather than bake.



I love lemon, but 1/2 cup of zest is definately a typo. I used about 1 tablespoon, and the chicken was still almost too lemony. I also added a couple of cloves of minced garlic and a little olive oil as we grilled the chicken after marinating for several hours. It was very moist and tangy.



do not use 1/4 cup of zest as stated. I used 1/2 tbs and it came out with a great zip to it. my fiancee thought it was perfect! I will make this again.
