Very good!! Chicken was very juicy and tender with a great mixture of flavors. Hubby was glad we had one chicken breast left over so he could eat it, for lunch, at work tomorrow! Will definitely make this recipe again!

Delicious and super easy! I used dried thyme because it was all I had on hand, but still tasted great! Did broil the chicken for the last 5 minutes

Have never brined chicken before. I know it made all the difference. It turned out to be the juiciest chicken breast I have ever prepared. I would have liked the chicken to turn out as golden as the picture, it was lacking color. The flavors were so nice. Will make again.

This chicken came out tender and juicy. I typically prefer strong flavors, but it was nice to try something on the lighter side. I served this with asparagus.

Moist and delicious and flavorful! I used a premade dry rub and did not tenderize, just cut the breasts in half to thin them out.
Alex M. 30 May 2016
Really amazing! I made it for some friends who came over and they loved it that it was fresh and not dry

So I wasn't sure how to pour the butter-mixed stuff on the chicken so I just put it on one side and as it baked flipped the chicken on the other side and poured the rest on there. The meat came out wonderful and the lemon taste added to the deliciousness. I freaking love this app!
