Comments

  1. I NEVER comment on these things but I felt like I had to- I followed this recipe to the letter and was really displeased with the results :( I wish I hadn’t trusted what it said about the lemon juice! If you make this, think twice before you put in 2 lemons’ worth of juice. A lot of effort for what ended up being a take-out taco night :(

  2. Made this for dinner tonight, I used frozen chicken breasts and put it on high for 6 hours. It was WAY too lemony for my husband and son. My husband wouldn’t even finish it. :( Good basic idea though, just too much lemon. Would make again but cut the lemon WAY down (like, 1/2 of one lemon) and add lots of garlic and some thyme.

  3. Six hours on low?

  4. Another great and easy recipe! It is very lemony. I guess I should have expected that with the juice of two lemons and all. he he. I made mine in a ceramic dutch oven in my oven on 250 for 4 hours. I also added a package of sliced mushrooms because I love them. My house smelled amazing while it cooked. The chicken came out nice and tender and prep was a piece of cake.

  5. So I am a health food junkie and I really love this blog. The recipes are awesome! But my family is not so much. It can be difficult to please them when I like to make meals with vegetables and healthy meats, but they would prefer a giant, fatty cheeseburger. This recipe was a definite exception though! It was flavorful and easy to make! I will definitely be making this for the family again soon!

  6. Okay, so I am a major health food junkie. Most of the time, my family thinks that the foods I eat couldn’t be more detestable. I am all about the fruits and vegetables, living with a family of carnivores! However, this recipe is one that I have to keep on hand. Everyone loved it!! It had really great flavor and it was really simple to make. I will definitley be making this one again soon!
