    This is my favorite recipe. The chicken and vegetables bake in the garlic lemon juice and are soooo good. I have also made this with a large roasting chicken. I'm not sure where I got it but I'm glad I did !!!

      Delicious! I halved the recipe and used 3 bone-in half chicken breasts. I think the cooking time was 25-30 minutes. I did not time it. I baked it until it was 165 degrees. Great recipe! Very moist and full of flavor! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
