    Mama Cee Jay's Note:

    I adapted this recipe from Jeff Smith, Frugal Gourmet. It is easy to prepare and relatively simple to cook. Just be careful for flare ups on the grill.

      HEAVEN, pure heaven!!! I roasted mine whole in the oven, and stuffed the cavity with the squeezed lemons cut up! (Basted the chicken with the fresh squeezed lemon juice prior to roasting.) *Roasted at 350 for 2 1/2 hours for a 6 1/2 lb. chicken. It came out SO gorgeous!! Absolutely DELICIOUS!!! Thanks so much!! Made for the ZWT4 :)

      Lovely flavour. I used a couple of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I threw them into the marinade this morning straight from the freezer and cooked them tonight. They were done in about an hour. Made for ZWT4 Zingo

      This was a very easy recipe to use for chicken. I used chicken thighs instead of a whole chicken as that is what we prefer. The chicken was very moist from marinating. Reviewed for ZWT4 Zingo.
