This is one of my favorites but,in the summer, I put it on the rotisserie on the grill. Perfect ever time and a real crowd pleaser.

We've made this recipe a few times and my husband and I both LOVE it! It's so easy. After carving the chicken I squeeze the lemon juice over the meat and it's very moist and yummy. It's now one of my staple recipes.
