whole chicken, cut into pieces

What an easy recipe! I used whole boneless chicken breasts, and covered the casserole dish with foil for the first 40 minutes of baking time. I also topped the chicken with olive oil for more moistness. I served the chicken with garlic dill potatoes.
This was okay--you gotta make sure to get it before it dries out--I think I'll cover it next time until the last few minutes for browning.
I made this with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Deeeelish! The curry powder makes this dish special. The whole house smelled great.
This was EXCELLENT! Such a quick and easy recipe! The chicken smelled great while cooking....drove us crazy having to wait :) Followed recipe as written, only I used boneless chicken breasts, (frozen)& added 1 TBS honey per breast, covered and baked @ 375 for 50 minutes uncovered 10. I thickened the juices w/ cornstarch and poured the sauce over the chicken.....YUMMY!! Very moist and perfectly seasoned. Definately will make again and again! Thanks for the recipe :)
WOW! This chicken was wonderful! Very easy to make, and a definite crowd-pleaser! I used some of the previous reviews to tweak it slightly: I used boneless/skinless breasts (6), and I added 6 TBSP corn syrup to make it a little sweeter, as the lemon is very tart. I cooked it for about 35 minutes covered, and uncovered for 10. When the chicken was cooked, I transferred the juices to a saucepan, and thickened it over med/high heat with some cornstarch. I served it with a simple California salad and rolls to sop up the extra sauce. Absolutely wonderful, this is on my weekly menu for sure!
This preparation of this recipe was so simple that I we were all surprised at how wonderful it tasted. (I used chicken thighs and baked them in an oven bag) My husband works for a chicken company so we eat chicken all the time, but this recipe really stands out from the rest. It's now become a family favourite!
This chicken is SO good!!! My whole family loved it. The flavor is awesome, and it was even better the next day when my husband used the leftovers in an omelet. YUM!
This was a very simple recipe, but had a TON of flavor! My family all liked it, even two teenagers :) I did brush on some olive oil after adding all ingredients, as someone else suggested. Also, I covered it with foil until the last ten minutes. It came out very juicy doing it this way. I will surely make this one again. Perfect for busy weeknights! Yum
