Just one more sleep before our big move; I can't begin to tell you how relieved I am with everything packed and the rain has finally stopped after raining non stop for a week. I haven't been cooking much but I did manage to find this dish that I cooked a while back. This is a very simple and delicious chicken dish that is also perfect for a summer bbq, that is if we are getting any nice sunny days at all. For those who are not very keen of dealing with a whole bird, chicken maryland will be a wonderful substitute.
P.S Internet at our new home will not be connected until the 28th but I will find way to post regularly. have a wonderful weekend and happy cooking.

Help! Your chicken recipe looks truly mouthwatering. If you like picture linkys and blog hops, a Decidedly Healthy or Horridly Decadent hop has just begun (Sat party, but open for entries until Mon noon). But, the decidedly healthy (whole grain, poultry, fish or veggie) recipes are in short supply. Consider sharing your recipe with the folks following this hop:ReplyDelete
Older posts that fit the theme are also a-ok. Posting 2 recipes also ok.
Oh wow.. you grilled the lemons as well! Does that give it a nice charred taste? I shall try grilling lemons next!ReplyDelete

Thank goodness that the rain has finally stopped. Good luck on your move! Thanks for sharing this great chicken recipe with us, before you moved.ReplyDelete
Sounds like it would have a really interesting taste, I just might try this one.ReplyDelete
I've cooked this dish quite a few times. It's very good in the winter as it gives a little bit of sunshine to an otherwise dull grey days, as we are having now.ReplyDelete
Congrats on another great dish!ReplyDelete
Looks delicious and so well cooked.
I like checking out all the great ideas for chicken...great spices here. I never thought of grilling the lemons like that! They looks awesome!ReplyDelete
Just beautiful! That looks so delicious. I wonder if it would be good to marinate overnight or if that would make the flavor too bitter? I may try an overnight marinade.ReplyDelete
