  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, lime juice, and oil. Place chicken pieces in the mixture, and marinate at least 1 hour in the refrigerator (preferably 2 hours).
  2. Preheat the oven broiler. Fit a roasting pan with a lightly greased wire rack. Fill pan with water to just below the level of the rack.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade, arrange on the wire rack, and season with Italian seasoning and seasoned salt. Transfer remaining marinade to a saucepan, and bring to a boil.
  4. Broil chicken 10 minutes in the preheated oven, basting frequently with the boiled marinade. Turn chicken, season again with Italian seasoning and seasoned salt, and continue broiling and basting 10 minutes, or until well browned and juices run clear.

This is delicious! We made the following changes: We did not baste the chicken or cut it onto bite size pieces. It was wonderful! Not too sour at all. It had just the right tartness to really add to the italian seasoning. This is my new favorite!

This was too sour for my taste but my 14 year old loved it. Be careful with the hot water in the pan as it can slosh out when basting the chicken. I would add some honey to the sauce if I made it again.

I didn't have time to marinade this for the full hour - the chicken marinated for about 40 minutes - and it still turned out delicious. The ingredients are things I keep in the kitchen at all times, so this is a good last-minute dinner. I served it with couscous and salad.

I really liked this recipe, however I made some changes/additions for personal preferance. I increased the lemon juice to 3/4cup, and added 3 minced garlic cloves to the marinade. I marinaded it for a hour in the fridge, placed it on the broiler pan and added pepper to the seasoning. Turned out fantastic. Will make again.

Wow yum! I only used lime juice and wow! I used it in fajitas but it really should be eated alone, too good to be wrapped up with other flavors.

Great & Easy! I grilled mine. I will cut the marinade recipe in half next time.

Super easy and very good. Added 1/2 tsp red chili paste for some zing. GREAT FLAVOR.

This was a nice quick and simple dish to make. I only marinated the chicken for 20 minutes and I am glad I did because if I did it for longer I think it would come out too sour.
