Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was the best chicken I have made ia a while. This was the best chicken I have made ia a while. It was so moist and flavorful. I added Potatoes to the pan and basted them with the lemon dressing and they turned out wonderful...everyone loved the flavor of the chicken and the potatoes...my husband said it was better then the Greek chicken that we have had at 4**** restaurants that specialize in Greek cooking. Will certainly make it again and definitely when we have guests over!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a 'throw it in the oven and forget about it' kind of meal! This is a 'throw it in the oven and forget about it' kind of meal! For a fantastic variation, I cut up red and russet potatoes in large chunks along with orange and yellow bell pepper strips. Added these to the pan and poured a bit of Kraft Sun-Dried Tomato dressing on the potatoes and peppers. Sprinkled a little crumbled feta cheese on the veggies and baked it all together. DELICIOUS - WILL DEFINITELY COOK AGAIN!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I first made this recipe about a year ago. I first made this recipe about a year ago. I love Greek food and thought this an easy way to get great flavored chciken. To round out the meal I make a Greek salad with the same dressing I marinate the chicken with and serve it with some warm pita bread. It is so well received in my house that my brother asks for it all the time. I hope one day to find an excellent lemon rice pilaf to go with it all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my daughter's favorite chicken recipe, she requests this at least once to twice a month. This is my daughter's favorite chicken recipe, she requests this at least once to twice a month. It's simple enough that she can help me with it. The only problem is finding the Kraft Greek Vinaigrette, I have had to subsitute it with others but it still taste just as good. A Ceasar Salad is a great add to this as well. To end the meal just right a lemon desert is perfect with this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This recipe was a joke. This recipe was a joke. I roasted the chicken for even longer than it said and it was still raw inside. This is the third recipe I have tried from this site that hasn't turned out. I am so disappointed that I do not plan on trying ANY more! I seriously wonder if they test these at all of just make them up and hope for the best.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from maybe I would make it again. maybe I would make it again. I expected lots of flavor, but I thought it had none. The chicken was wonderfully juicy. I served it with a varied lettuce salad with walnuts and sliced red grapes with a raspberry dressing... and of course.... when doing Greek... I served Ouzo. I think it needs more flavor. Thanks for the recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is not only five star but six, seven or more! This is not only five star but six, seven or more! I used all the ingredients listed in this recipe but added garlic powder while seasoning. Incredibly delicious and simple to prepare. I served this with sauteed asparagus and mushrooms, mashed potatoes and a spring salad on the side. When you try this you will be hooked!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made two at once to allow for company. I made two at once to allow for company. I mistakenly bought a large turkey breast instead of a second chicken, but this turned out for the better. The turkey was even better than the chicken. Also, I had to cook the chicken for an extra 25 minutes to get it done, but it was still good and moist when done.
