Lemon Chicken

My friend Bec in Australia recently started her own food blog. Her second recipe she posted was this one for Lemon Chicken. I made it on Sunday night for dinner. I wasn't feeling the greatest so I know I didn't enjoy it as much as I would have if I were feeling well but it was still good and my husband enjoyed it. One thing I loved about this chicken dish was that the chicken was SO tender. I think next time I make it though I will halve the amount of lemon juice and double the amount of honey so it is more honeyish that lemony. That is just my personal preference though. Thanks for a great and easy recipe Bec! I miss you!!!
