Ina's Easy Garlic Lemon Chicken

 I was having an Ina kind of week.  I made a few recipes from her and as to be expected they were all delicious.  This recipe appealed to me because it looked simple, the ingredients were in my fridge, and it looked super tasty despite the lack of time it took to put things together.

I watched her make it and quickly grabbed a pen and paper to write down what I needed to do.  I'm pretty sure it was dinner that very same night.  Next time I'd go out to get chicken breast with the skin on to help keep the chicken moist instead of using the skinless chicken I had in the freezer.  Lesson learned- always listen to Ina.
