Eat it or Beat it: Citrus Chicken Bake

I try to eat and cook as vegetarian as possible, but Sean does love him a hunk of meat. So, when I saw this recipe for an citrus herb chicken bake, I knew I had to try it. It was very easy to make. It turned out very lemony, if I made it again I would use less lemon and more garlic! However, it is very healthy. Serve it with rice and veggies for a well rounded meal!
