We just bought your Cooking For Jeffrey book and made the Skillet Roasted Lemon Chicken- We loved it, however there was a distinct bitterness to the dish due to the rind of the lemon. Is there a way around this?

As the lemon slices cook, they break down and caramelize, but it's important that they be sliced very thin- no more than 1/4" slices- or they may remain bitter.
