Lemon Garlic and Onion Chicken

This recipe for lemon garlic and onion chicken started out as a recipe for pork chops.  In a hurry earlier in the week, I used the pork chops and only had chicken left.  So, my recipe turned into Lemon Garlic and Onion Chicken.  And, it was a delicious “mistake.”  If you are lucky enough to come across some “young garlic” at your local farmer’s market, use the entire piece… green shoots and peeled bulb.  It adds a robust flavor that is unbelievable.  Enjoy!
