Lemon chicken

Chicken is quite often prepared for lunch or dinner at our house, so it’s not surprise that I try to find new recipes with it. Till now I haven’t tried chicken with lemon. But this recipe is with mild lemon taste and is not very sour, so all my family enjoy it.

Lemon chicken

Time needed:
Yields: 6 servings
Calories: 488 kcal / 1 serving

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 1,4-1,8 kg chicken parts (suggestion to use thighs)
  • 2 tbsps. lemon peel, only yellow part
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic , crushed
  • 2 tbsps. fresh or 2 tsps. dried thymes
  • 1 tbsp. fresh or 1 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black peppers
  • 2-3 tbsps. butter, melted

Directions:

  • In a bowl mix lemon juice, lemon peel, garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cut into each chicken piece one or two times – this will help the marinade. Place the chicken pieces in marinade and turn over that every side was coated with marinate. Cover bowl and put in the refrigerator. Let marinate for at least for 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 210°С. Remove chicken from marinade and place in a single layer in baking dish, skin side up. Reserve the marinade. Use a pastry brush to brush a little melted butter on to each piece of chicken.
  • Bake 50-55 minutes, until the skins are crispy brown, and from cut chicken runs clear juice. Half-way through the baking, baste the chicken pieces generously with reserved marinade.
  • Baked chicken take out of the oven, cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes. Serve chicken with the baking juices on the side or a little poured over the top of the chicken. Enjoy!

Baked chicken salads

Very delicious and satisfying salads. Especially we liked that bell pepper is baked not fresh. I prepared these salads not once and tried with iceberg salad, and with salads form our garden (salads, rucola, sorrel). Every time it was perfect! And depending on vegetables amount you can prepare this salads for 6 or for 3 people. It’s up to you 🙂

I decided to prepare something new for our already boring quick menu. This dish is very quick, if you do like me – boil chicken a day before. My hubby commended. I asked him maybe the dish is so good because almost all the week we ate what we had on hand? But he assured that no and ate almost everything, leaving just a few bites for my next day lunch… You can enjoy these salads and cold, and warm.

Very juicy, fragrant chicken. Even little eaters can easily chew it. I tried both, chicken and turkey, and both tasted incredibly good.
