Ingredients
Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Season the chicken thighs with 1 1/4 teaspoons of the salt and 1 teaspoon of the freshly ground pepper.

Place the flour in a shallow dish. Lightly dredge the chicken in the flour and set aside.

In a large wide saute pan with 2 to 3-inch sides, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot but not smoking, add the thighs and brown well on both sides, about 6 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

Add the onions to the oil and cook, stirring to scrape up any browned bits from the chicken until wilted, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, crushed red pepper, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the bay leaf and cook 1 minute. Add the lemon juice, chicken broth, and browned chicken thighs to the pan. Bring the mixture to a simmer, cover tightly, and place in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes, remove the lid and cook an additional 15 minutes, or until cooked through and tender.

While the chicken is baking, cook the pasta until al dente, 4 to 5 minutes for dry pasta. Drain well and toss in a large bowl with 3 tablespoons of the parsley and the butter.

To serve, place a portion of pasta in the center of 4 large plates. Arrange 2 thighs around each serving of pasta and drizzle lemon garlic cooking liquid over the pasta. Garnish with additional parsley and serve immediately.

I got rave reviews from the family for this following the recipe exactly. I felt the sauce was a little too greasy and when I do it again I will pour off some oil after browning the chicken.  item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is amazing!!  So good!  I drained a little of the oil off after I sautéed the thighs and I used red mashed potatoes instead of pasta because I had some I had to get rid of.  BUT that was all I changed.  So good, a definite keeper!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used boneless,skinless chicken,and decreased the garlic to three cloves. Awesome restraunt cooking easy!<div><br /></div> item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made as directed except used equivalent amount of minced garlic from a jar and added some lemon zest to the sauce because I was a bit short on the lemon juice.  Very tasty, but I used half the recommended pasta and still got 6 servings out of this.  It's way too much for 4 people unless you are HONGREEEEE. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love love love this recipe! My chicken turned out perfectly moist with the taste of garlic with a touch of lemon.  Thank you Emeril for sharing such a delicious recipe! This definitely get 5 stars!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Worth 30 cloves of garlic. This was delicious and I can't wait to make it again. My first batch I didn't do 30 cloves of garlic. I thought it would be too much. Wrong. Even the 20some I did was excellent! Like others I buy boneless skinless thighs. They're inexpensive and worth it! I went back for seconds as did the rest of the family. Fresh chicken broth is easy...use the wing tips from your homemade chix wings to make broth and freeze in cubes! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this dish this evening and I used the 30 cloves and seasoned with lemon-pepper instead of salt and pepper and then I added a little heavy whipping cream #newstapledish #cantwaitforleftovers #easydish #delishdish item not reviewed by moderator and published
really delicious! I just didn't have all that garlic, so I put in one whole head instead. But I loved the flavors! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made a lot of Lemon Chicken recipes over the years but this one is by far the best I have ever had! This was absolutely delish! I served over rice since I didn't want pasta. We were all practically licking the plates. Cooked in my dutch oven and worked just perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome! This is a keeper the flavors were on time. I did not use 30 garlic cloves, but 10 instead most of them were large I also sliced some red, orange and yellow peppers and cooked with the onions. Then added a little lime juice with the lemon juice and used 2 bay leaves. I seasoned the flour with some of everything in pantry. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband surprised me with this dish for dinner. Delicious!! He only used 6 cloves of garlic. Even our picky 16-year old ate every bite! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was worried because of all the garlic, I tasted the sauce before adding the chicken, and it was very lemony and a bit spicy. I was so worry my 6 year old would not be able to eat it. I was so wrong, my entire family loved it, I served it with brown rice because we had spaghetti the previous night, it was so delicious! It's a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So tasty and so good! it's easy to put together and quick as well. Could easily serve this to guest and they'd think you'd been cooking all day long. I halved the recipe and used only 3 large organic garlic cloves....much less that suggested, but still so delicious. Highly recommend! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish is absolutley delish!!! Big favorite with my family. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was AWESOME!!! I didn&amp;#39;t have enough garlic the last time, but I didn&amp;#39;t really miss it. It&amp;#39;s gonna taste so much better with the actual garlic amount!! I also substituted EVO for the butter. I am gonna do this recipe again tonight with legs though. I did cook them long enough to take the bones out, and used it as a sauce (similar to spaghetti I mixed the angel hair into it and OH MY GOODNESS! So good...and even better the next day! The sauce was way too good not to keep this FOREVER. I think I&amp;#39;ll buy chicken just for this recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Tasty and easy. The measurements for this recipe were right on the money, no tweeking needed. I did however, as I always do, removed the skin. This could be made on stovetop too. I used 4 lemons to get 1/2 cup, I didn't feel it was too much. If you are making this for company and worried it is too much, cut back to 3 lemons. I do not however find pasta a good side to this. I made it the second time with rice and it was better bc this dish is one with a gravy more than a sauce. The garlic melts into little buttery nuggets during the cooking process, so don't be afraid of garlic when it's cooked a long time like this. I prepped the dish early In day, and when dinner was due, I just popped it in oven for the allotted time. A good make-ahead meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I follow the recipe just as it is, and it was delicious! To me, the amount of garlics and lemon juice are just perfect! Not too garlicky or lemony! Just perfect! My husband asked me to save this recipe on my recipe book and I certainly will! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband loved it and said it was definitely a "repeat recipe"! I was suspicious of using so many garlic cloves, but they "stewed" while in the oven and the flavor was definitely there but not biting. I didn't have a lid for my pan, so just covered it tightly with foil; worked great! I'll probably experiment next time with more chicken broth/lemon juice, etc. to get more of that delicious sauce! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was very tasty and absolutely fabulous! I used boneless skinless chicken thighs. I also baked it for 1 1/2 hour longer on 300* for tender fall apart chicken. I removed the lid the last half hour. I will definitely be making this dish again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This came out excellent. I didn't use flour because we are doing a low-carb diet. I added just a little butter to the oil when I browned the chicken. The chicken came out really moist and tasty. If we were eating pasta, the sauce/gravy that formed in the bottom of the pan would have been great on some angel hair! Other than chopping and smashing all the garlic, the recipe was super easy. I made it for a week night meal and we will be adding this to the rotation. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe and make it often. I have been tempted to use skinless thighs, but the fat from the skin creates this delicious sauce. I just trim the extra fat from the meat after it is done cooking. This dish is always a winner and it freezes well if you have extras. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Mine did not turn out well at all...it tasted of watery lemon and garlic juice-like. ick! bummed I did not have the experience everyone else did! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty, and so happy no butter is called for! I will definitely make this again. I used boneless thighs and it turned out great. I tried the sliced potatoes instead of pasta as suggested by another reviewer (cooking them in a little canola oil with salt and pepper for 10 minutes, then adding them to the pan with the chicken just prior to placing it in the oven. I also used canola oil in place of olive oil as this oil does better with searing at high temperatures. Will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is awesome. My family loved it... Would highly recommend it.. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Turned out really yummy. I used Boneless skinless thighs, and it was still full of flavor. Easy to make and really yummy to eat. Everyone loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! My mother had me over for dinner and made this. She took the skin off the thighs to reduce calories. We all loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
made this recipe it was awsome i also cut up and added some potatoes fried them for 10 min first drained from oil and baked in with the chicken and served it with arugula salad not pasta it was so delicious will defenately make it again the same way i did...it was not heavy or sweet like some other reviews i read on here..mine came out perfect...but i am also a great cook as well... italian born i was thought by the best at age 5.. and so i can figure out and change up the recipe or make up one to my liking with no problem and always have had great great results....so try this recipe u will love it..good luck..thanks emeril item not reviewed by moderator and published
Chicken was delicious, but the sauce was too sweet for me. Could be my Spanish heritage (Grandma didn't do sweet or maybe I over sweat the onions. I cut the recipe in half. If I were to do it again, I'd reduce the amount of onions and kick up the lemon juice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a really yummy!! I didn't have enough thighs so I added wings n it was as good as the thighs. My opinion u can use any part of the chicken u please to use. N that goes with the pasta . I didn't change a thing but just added mushrooms! Definitely will cook this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This one is going into the regular rotation! Served with fresh pasta, this was a very tasty dish. Thanks, Emeril! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummmmy this was delish...I can not believe how good this was,it was the best lemon chicken dish I have ever had anywhere...anytime!!! Will make this a weekly feature at my house. Excellent!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was amazing, so flavorful and ingredients were inexpensive. Budget friendly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was an instant hit! I only had 3 bone-in chicken thighs thawed and was looking for something tasty that didn't require a trip to the store. So I had to scale the recipe back. But the only other change I made was to remove the skin and fat. It was bright, spicy and delicious. My picky 9yr old son loved it! I might try adding mushrooms and wine the next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
so good easy cheap and a hit with the family item not reviewed by moderator and published
so so so so yummy! am moving soon and need to kill off random ingredients hanging around the kitchen...therefore, used lime juice instead of lemon, increased the amount of chicken broth, and altered the spices to use cayenne pepper instead of crushed red pepper...it was so good! Chicken was very moist and tender. Not at all oily item not reviewed by moderator and published
Really delicious. Even better the second day. I'll be keeping this recipe handy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A bit on the heavy side - Next time I would add in some mushrooms and possibly trim the fat on the chicken thighs. I would also add in more lemon juice since I thought the lemon was really weak. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Omg...love this dish! I made two minor changes. After reading reviews I decided to cut the oil and just use cooking spray. I also trimmed the thighs of skin and fat, why bother trying to get a crispy skin if your just gonna steam it anyways? I love the huge garlic flavor in the recipe and that the sauce was creamy with the right amount of tang. item not reviewed by moderator and published
great pasta dish when you don't want a tomato-based sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was super good. Loved the flavor and went great with the pasta. Followed the recipe exactly the first time, but the second time I made it, I added an extra onion and it turned out great again. I skipped the oil the second time, used homemade chicken stock, and mixed in some goat cheese at the end too, which added an interesting creamy twist. Might try using baked potatoes next time instead of pasta. So many small changes one could make to tweak it, but an awesome recipe as is. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A bit on the oily side, but that's easily remedied. It was delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
followed recipe to a tee. not good at all. kids and hubby disappointed! not much flavor and chicken was not crunchy.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good dish, though my chicken could have been a little more crunchy.That may be my fault, I skinned the thighs. I didn't have quite enough lemon juice, so it didn't have a strong lemon taste. I also didn't add the crushed red pepper. I am interested in knowing the calorie count. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The most succulent chicken I've tasted. I changed nothing. It needed NO changes. Will be making this regularly. THanks Emeril. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this today, word to the wise, cut back the lemon. All in all, good recipe but, too much lemon. Sorry but, NOT MASARAP! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was a very good recipe- I also used the lemon zest along with the juice! Gave the chicken extra lemon flavor to it. Also the last 15 minutes of cooking when you take the top of, I added fresh thyme. Served it with rice!!! YUMMY item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this dish for a dinner at my home for several friends and they loved it! I am not a thigh eater so I just tasted it and loved the flavors that it had. It was wonderful!!! I am making it again today for another dinner and I am sure that it will be great!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
There's only me so I used 4 thighs; 8 cloves of garlic and 5 sprigs of fresh thyme, since I had no parsley. I added 1 cup of Pinot Grigio with the lemon juice because I love the combination. Really excellent! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to make and very tasty. Held back a bit on the garlic, but all in all a great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe &amp; have been making it for years! I use shallots instead of onions &amp; orzo instead of angel hair. I have tried this with all different cuts of chicken &amp; will say that bone in/skin on chicken thighs definitely yield the most flavor! item not reviewed by moderator and published
delish. I didn't dredge in flour and transferred everything into a baking dish for the oven. Came out a little dry but with the sauce, it's totally fine. Loved the flavor - great healthy dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
4 year old, 7 year old, and husband all LOVED this dish!!! I used boneless skinless thighs, but did not otherwise alter the recipe. I will be putting this in the usual rotation! Great with cous cous! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thanks Emeril, This was an AWESOME dish, My family don't like chicken ,never mind with bone in. You have proved them wrong. I added some white wine, mushrooms, topped off with French fried onions. I made rice instead of pasta. I cooked it on my stove top. (No oven) I cooked everything else according to recipe!! This was my first time making this dish!! AMAZING I will make this dish every week item not reviewed by moderator and published
Served this at halftime of a playoff game as an alternative to the usual spicy, high fat fare. Light and refreshing and guys liked it. Followed recipe exactly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great flavor. Used only 15 cloves of garlic and added white wine. My family loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published

so easy and delicious. followed recipe exactly and turned out beautifully. everyone loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ran across this recipie while looking for something different to do with some chicken thighs I had. This was the perfect way to cook them. So great!! I love garlic and onions, so...Perfect!! Thank you, Emeril. item not reviewed by moderator and published
People are SO funny. they fool around with a recipe to the point it doesn't resemble the original as written and then complain how it doesn't work. this is a great simple little recipe. i did add some artichokes and sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms to the sauce the second time i made it;however, the original was just great. it works with pasta, rice, polenta, cous cous, orzo or steamed veggies if you don't like the fat on the thighs, rip off the skin or trim the excess fat around the edges with shears. fat and bones are where the flavor is. i served a caprese salad before and espresso panna cotta for dessert. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Chicken itself tasted good, but sauce was bland and greasy. Would not make again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was great. I loved the sweet, soft, smashed garlic. I added some lemon zest for a little more dimension. Fabulous. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe took awhile to prep and overall it was pretty well laid out. I also received the statement, "its like something from a resturaunt" and pictures were taken (interesting). One problem though, is that it tasted like it had to much lemon juice, next time I will cut back on the freshly squeezed lemon and possibly put frenchs french onion over the top on the second half of baking for 15 minutes after lid is removed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish is absolutely delicious - even the most finicky of my 3 daughters loved it. And my husband, who never wants to try anything new, loved it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flour to egg to bread crumbs sequence is standard breading procedure. Dredging in flour alone would make the chicken less crunchy and perhaps cut some of the calories. Which you do is really a matter of prference. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family really enjoyed this dish! I believe my boyfriend's exact words were "it's like something straight from a restaurant!" Very easy to make but looks really nice. I used the little bow tie pastas and it was just such a nice looking plate. Lemon and garlic really enhanced the chicken's flavor. So good! Can't wait to make it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty, crunchy chicken but tender on the inside. I'm on a grits kick so i served it over creamy grits-- UNBELIEVABLE! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this was a great recipe. Put it over thin whole wheat spahgetti. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars was it was a bit spicey from the crushed red pepper. I only had 6 thighs so I adjusted the ingredients and made sure to reduce the tsp of crushed red pepper. It left me with a hot taste and overpowered the garlic and lemon. I will probably substitute the red pepper with black next time. It is definitely a keeper. I agree with other reviews, a good comfort food. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this recipe!!!! Tried if for a fairly picky bunch and "sooo yummy" was a direct quote from one of my friends. I was nervous about the dish after reading some of the reviews, but no need to worry...this is a fairly easy dish to make, but looks like you spent hours slaving away in the kitchen. I used boneless skinless thighs with just the flour (no breadcrumbs or eggwash) and they were just fine. Will probably cut back on the onion next time, only b/c I don't like a lot of onion in the sauce (flavor was fine). Not too garlicky at all. Don't have a pot that'll go in the oven so I simmered on the stovetop for 20 minutes and transferred to a baking dish in the oven for the last 15 minutes. Did the angel hair pasta as instructed and it was the perfect comfort food! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband is not easy to impress when it comes to food, but I definitely scored with this one :) We love garlic so this was not at all too garlicy for us. I didn't have pasta so I fried some rice and added some butter and parsley to it which came out fantastic :) will definitely be cooking it again item not reviewed by moderator and published
John from Ca. said that Emeril dipped the chicken thighs in egg and breadcrumbs after dredging in flour...that the recipe was missing that part. Is that true or is dredging in flour all that is called for. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is very easy and it tastes really good. I have made it several times now. My entire family loves it, even my 12 year old who is picky about everything! I take the skin off my thighs, use less garlic, and more broth and it's just fabulous. And the leftovers are great at work the next day. Easy and quick for an after work meal... 10 minutes and pop it in the oven for an hour. Perfect for a busy working mom. You've got to try this!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I halfed the recipe and used 4 chicken thighs, which I cut up into smaller pieces. I also added extra chicken broth because I like alot of sauce. What a simple and delicious meal! The chicken was sooo soft and flavorful. I highly recommend it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
We just love the flavors of this dish and it is so easy to make!!!! We have made it several times. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is easy and excites all of the taste buds. I did however do a few variations. I didn't have angel hair pasta so I used a package of chicken flavor noodles. I also didn't want to make so much therefore I cut the recipe in half, which we all know sometimes measurements don't come out right. So I think the sauce is suppose to be more like sauce instead of like soup. I used my soup like sauce to flavor my noodles. That was even better because it allowed the lemon juice to come to life. I thought I had thawed a package of thighs, turns out it was breasts...so recipe is good with any part. One thing, my garlic turned blue...has this happened to anyone else before??? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I DECIDED TO MAKE THIS RECIPE FOR A LARGE CROWD AND THEN SOME EXTRAS EVEN DECIDED TO SHOW UP AT THE LAST MINUTE. ALSO, THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME I WAS THE COOK FOR THE NIGHT AND I MUST SAY THAT EVERYONE WAS LOVING THIS DISH AND WAS SURPRISED THAT I COULD MAKE SUCH A DELICIOUS MEAL. NOW EVERYONE IS LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR NEXT PARTY TO SEE WHAT I AM GOING TO MAKE NEXT. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this dish for several different groups of folks and have had rave reviews every single time!!! I have little 5 yr. old twin granddaughters who are the pickiest eaters in the world. I made this once when they were visiting and one of them said as she came into the kitchen form outside, " What is that delicious smell?" I said "It is your dinner". I was so happy to see her eat all of the chicken and the pasta and ask for more as did her twin!!! I love this dish..... My daughter says you can never have enough garlic and with this recipe she is right. The garlic is so nice and mild and so good for you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a delicious dish. Don't be afraid of the quantity of garlic, it makes for an incredibly rich broth that isn't overpowering with the flavor of garlic. This recipe is a keeper, I'll definitely make it again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was great. Easy and quick to make. The cooking time is perfect!! We served it over seasoned couscous and will definitely be making this one again! Thanks Emeril!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family doesn't love chicken, so I am always trying to find recipes they will enjoy. This one hands-down was a winner. I served it with zucchini. Delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added mushrooms, peas and a fresh tomatoe to the dish and put it over penne. I thought it was enjoyable. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We've made this twice- once with boneless thighs and once with bone-in. They were great both times but I think I preferred the bone-in. I added about a cup extra of chicken broth so there would be plenty of sauce for over the pasta. I served it with some roasted asparagus and there were no leftovers...next time I am making a few extra to make sure I have some to enjoy the next day. This is definitely a go to recipe for entertaining....Looks impressive when served family style over a large bowl of pasta. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The chicken had great flavor, but if I were to make it again I wouldn't put it over pasta. I thickened up the sauce on the stovetop after removing it from the oven because it looked a little too oily. I only used half the garlic and it was plenty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was easy to make. Chicken was tender and good texture, but it was too fatty, too garlicy and something was missing. This is not a do over dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am a huge fan of dark meat, lemon and garlic so I was very excited about this recipe (especially after I found chicken thighs for super cheap at the store). As far as texture goes, this dish really delivers, however I felt like it was missing something. Next time I'm going to add mushrooms or something else. Overall it was good but not excellent. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i will preface this by saying i am not a fan of dark meat chicken. i was really excited to make this after watching the episode, it looked real hearty, and it was something different to do with pasta. the flavors were there, i think you could add a little more salt than the recipe calls for but other than that i'd follow the recipe's directions. as mentioned, the great thing about this is neither the lemon or garlic overpower the dish. again, i thought this would make me forget i was eating dark meat, but i suppose the dish highlights the properties of dark meat chicken that everyone loves, moistness, tenderness and juiciness...if that's what you like this delivers. i would probably like it better with breast meat but i don't think i'll be making this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my family last night and it was a HUGE hit! I added sliced baby bella mushrooms, artichoke hearts and sundried tomatoes as well! The chicken was so tender and the sauce was wonderful! I will be making this in the future for guests as well as for our family on a regular basis! Yum Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe failed to include what Emeril did on the show. After he dreged the thighs with flour which was seasoned, he dipped the thigh into a egg which was beaten and milk added to it and then into breadcrumbs which were also seasoned. Also he added the lemon halves to the dish before baking. I believe these steps which were left out enhance a great dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome dish, I am tried it out on my family before serving it this weekend for a dinner party. I will be doubling the recipe using some chicken breasts as well. I wouldn't change a thing. It is not to lemony or garlicky. I will be making this a regular meal in our house. Emeril this is a fantastic dish...what else do you make for your family that we can try? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just love watching Emeril cook but some recipes are too hard for me to follow. This one is amazing and very easy! The prep time is quick and the outcome is just fab! This is a winner for sure!!!! Make it, Eat it, Love it !! I Love Emeril!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making this for a few years for my clients and it is very nice and can be prepared quickly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Why spend the money for gas, tip &amp; price % upgrade....if you can make this wonderful gourmet dinner at home for less. THIS WAS FANTASTIC!! Although, it did take me a little longer to prepare than what is says. But it's well worth the time. Thanks Emeril - this one's a keeper! Love you!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can not believe how good this meal was. I even made it for my boyfriend who HATES lemon, and he thought that it was Delicious!!!!!!!!! You need to try this meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Followed this recipe as written, and it came out GREAT! Don't worry about 30 cloves of garlic being too strong; the garlic flavor is definitely there, but it is not too much, or too sharp. Yes, you can taste the lemon, and yes, you can taste the garlic (that's why it's called "lemon and garlic chicken thighs'!!). But the flavors are not overpowering; they mix well and complement eachother. Try this one; you'll love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
