Citrus Crunch Chicken

Citrus Crunch Chicken recipe
photo by:kraft
We call this Citrus Crunch Chicken, but with a lemon, a lime and an orange adding plenty of zesty punch, it could actually be Triple Citrus Crunch.

Delicious and fast. Add easy vegetable rice medley and steamed vegetables and you have a meal in 1/2 an hour.
Instead of slices of fruit I will cut up wedges next time. the slices caused some of the chicken to have just one flavor (lemon was too strong).
I love the taste of citrus and I couldn't wait to make this recipe.....The chicken was fine, but the citrus slices under the chicken turned bitter....and some of the bitterness got into the rice pilaf I sevred with it when I put it all on the serving platter. The bitter taste overpowered the rice and was hard to get rid of...we were still tasting it an hour after the time I will carefully remove the chicken so as not to get the slices on it, or I'll just use the zest and not cook the chicken on the slices...maybe a layer of celery or something over the slices before I bake it.
The chicken was excellant! But I was not thrilled with the rice pilaf recipe that is recommended as a side dish.
Quick and easy, awesome taste! We didn't actually eat the citrus on the bottom (juiced up the chicken, but better as a display). Suggestion to cooks- use a citrus zester, it cuts the peel better so no bitter chunks!
This was EXTREMELY bitter--my DH and I had to sprinkle sugar on the chicken to make it edible. It has potential, but definitely needs some modification if I would make it again. As is, it was disappointing. At the very least, I'd suggest PEELING the fruit that you layer in the bottom so that you don't get quite so much rind/zest taste. Having the zest in the chicken coating is more than plenty.
Easy to make, and awesome taste. Loved it.
We just had this and everyone really liked it. We will be having this again
The citrus taste keeps the chicken from drying out. I will definitely make this recipe again. This recipe can be done all year round, not just in the winter. A great dish to triple and take to a church gathering or a picnic. Clean up is a snap with the foil on the bottom of the pan.
very easy,tasty - my hubby and i loved it - the kids were not fond of the sourness - but i will make it again - and more then likely ill make it for company - looks like you spent a lot of time when you didnt :-)
