Tangy roasted lemons harmonize beautifully with chicken. They are also delicious chopped and sprinkled over fish.

Excellent. Served it twice now, one time for family and one time for company. Got compliments both times and then my friends wanted the recipe,

Another Favorite

Eating Well has been my "bible" for recipes since I was 18 (I'm 28 now). It's the only resource I use to find recipes outside of the family traditions. I am quite the amazing cook :) but I do have my favorites. And this is definitely one of them. Any chance I have to make lemon peels edible, I will definitely take advantage of it! I crave this dish often and have filled many happy bellies with this one!

Wonderful, light and summery!

I don't understand how people are complaining about the lemons. Perhaps three is too many? I used two, and since you put them in at the end, they give the dish a lovely, light lemon flavor that isn't overpowering at all. Like another reviewer, I also used frozen peas (but be sure not to put them in when the recipe says to add the capers - they'll be way overdone with almost 10 minutes in the broth). It was a great substitute since I didn't have capers on hand. Definitely recommend!

We hated this!!

This is the very first recipe from this site, that my family did not like. We really love lemons, but this was really bitter and unappetizing! I did follow the recipe. I like the idea of roasted lemons- I think next time , I would use 2 or 3 slices of a lemon - not 3 whole lemons.

I GRATE THE LEMON AND PUT ON

I GRATE THE LEMON AND PUT ON THE CHICKEN TO FRY. THEN I PEEL THE LEMONS AND CUT THE FRUIT UP AND FRY WITH THE CHICKEN. THE FRIED LEMON WE LOVE TO EAT A PIECE WITH EVERY BITE. I ONLY USE MEYER LEMONS. MAYBE SOME LEMONS ARE BITTER? LOTS OF CAPERS.. I DO MY FISH LIKE THIS ALSO. FIRST HAD THE FRIED LEMONS IN A RESTAURANT ON FISH WITH CAPERS.
