    I would love to try your recipes, but I was wondering about how many lemons you used?

    This sounds so easy and I think will be a hit with my family. My only question is, did you cover it with foil at any time during the cooking process. My worry is that the chicken and juices will dry out before the cooking time is up.

      Allow skin to crisp without covered first. Pour juiced over the top to get the crisp. Once crisp, cover with foil if needed. Thanks, Monica!

    I am planning on making this for a dinner party, 15-20 people, do you have any suggestions for me? Also, should I marinate the chicken (with the lemon, honey and all the fixins) before hand to let the flavors seep?
    Your input would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Ericka, I love making this dish! Just made it the other night and added about 1/4 cup honey to it. If you add more honey it will def give more flavor and I find that I don’t need to marinate it with the extra honey. I also add about 1-2 tablespoons dejon mustard to it too. You can open the oven half way through and run the juices over the top a few times with a turkey baster to give it more flavor too. To get the skin extra crispy, I turn the oven up to 415 the last 10 minutes or so, but keep an eye on it if you do that! Let me know how it goes! This is def one of my family favorites!
