    I’m making this for dinner tonight-the chicken is marinading now! I’m wondering about the last broil step. I noticed in your picture the lemons look bright and fresh, but if I place them on the chicken and then broil them, they’ll brown atop the chicken. Is that what is intended? Or should I place the lemon on after the last 2-3 minute broil?

      You can do it either way. The lemon slices are really just there as garnish, and you can broil them or add them after you’ve broiled the chicken if you want that fresher look.
