My comments for this Recipe:

This recipe did not call for salt! I have a hard time accepting chicken without salt. Also the recipe instructed that the halved lemons be placed in with the chicken rather than squeezed for its juices and then discarded. The end result consisted of blan chicken with concentrated areas that tasted of  bitter lemon. This was an instant turn off.
If I were to make this dish again I would add a little bit of salt and use freshly squeezed lemon juice and pour it over the chicken before roasting. The Lemon peel itself would be placed around the plate simply as a means to decorate the dish.

On the upside, this dish was sensible and easy to make.
The following post will consist of Bobby Flay's "Grill It" I would like to dive into his book before the summer is out since most of his recipes consist of mostly outdoor cooking.
