I can't remember where this recipe came from, but it's so easy! The chicken is so moist and the flavors of the lemon and herbs are subtle. It's a no-fail meal, perfect for company or everyday. I like to puree the pan juices after removing the lemons to serve alongside.I always make two at a time, so we have leftovers for lunches. Perfect for a caesar salad the next day.
