Chinese Meyer Lemon Chicken

This recipe was adapted by Jamnation founder Gillian from an original recipe by Rachel Ray.  This delightful chicken dinner is filled with citrus-y flavor and can be made in a flash.  Rice wine vinegar and soy sauce up the savory factor resulting in a balanced, healthy dish.
