This is the most disgusting recipe ever. I wasted 2 1/2 lbs of chicken and 2 perfectly good lemons. It calls for way too much thyme. I cut it in half and it still was too much! The dish has no color and appears to look worse than it tastes. What would posses someone to recommend boiling onions and then pouring them over raw chicken? You need to remove this from this site before more good food gets ruined! I also think it's terrible that when you review it automatically rates it with a 5 star if you don't pick one. Because of that I will no longer use any recipes from this site!
