This Sheet Pan Tray Bake Chicken with Lemon recipe is a response to a youtube recipe that we tried. The original was done in a slowcooker and it was... not good. So Glen Julie set about to improve the flavour and texture, while still retaining ease of cooking and the general flavour profile.

Olive oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (about 60 mL)
Freshly squeezed lemon juice 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs) (about 75 mL)
