  • I doubled the lemon juice, sprinkled Weber's Zesty Lemon seasoning on both sides of chicken, and added pepper. My family loved it with the changes. With the changes we give it 5 hats.

  • Used boneless chicken thighs instead,also instant Brown rice and increased cooking(brown rice) time. Next time will add more lemon. It was good but more lemon will make it better.
