OK for a quick dinner. I used 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and baked for 35 minutes.

I rubbed the chicken with fresh garlic for a few minutes before seasoning it. The chicken itself tasted fine, and the sauce was good over rice, but the bell pepper turned very sour and bitter as it soaked up the liquid. I usually mix a bit of water in with the lemon juice and wine, so I think that's why I found the flavors too strong. Still, I would NOT use a vegetable with its own strong flavor (like green bell pepper) for this recipe: try celery or potato instead, and keep the bell pepper for fajitas or salad.

I made this without the onions and peppers, as other reviewers suggested, and it turned out wonderful. Very moist and delicious served with rice and vegetables. And with prep time of just minutes, who can complain?!

Very Blah. I think next time I will try this recipe on fish instead. There just wan't enough flavor.

I made this recipe with some chicken breasts but omitted the bell pepper. It was delicious! Just a hint of the lemon flavor, was really nice but I may try it with just a touch more next time. Will be making again!

Why has this been waiting for a picture for 13 years? I cooked this UN covered for about 45 minutes - the onions were crispy and delicious. I omitted the bell pepper but would use red and yellow peppers next time. I used a seasoning blend adapted from Heather's Fried Chicken, this site, which is a combo of 2 tablespoons black pepper, 2 tablespoons garlic powder, 1 tablespoon paprika, and 1 tablespoon kosher or sea salt. Just barely sprinkled the chicken with the seasoning. The juice makes for an awesome gravy.
