Tammy's Review: 

Joshua created this recipe for a tangy grilled lemon chicken. It is bursting with flavor and very tender. I wouldn't want it every day, but it's a nice treat. My rating: 9/10


Please see my full review above! Thanks! ~Tammy


I enjoy this recipe a lot--it would go excellent diced up and put into a salad. The meat is very tender and juicy when served hot and the seasonings have a nice balance. If you are a fan of lemon pepper this is a great recipe to give a try. If you dislike citrus with your meats you may want to stay away, but for everyone else who wants a VERY easy recipe that looks great and is gushing savory, zesty flavor that accents the smoky flavor of grilled chicken really should give this a try. And as a bonus the finished chicken has a lovely color that is pleasing to the eye.
