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!

Chicken and zucchini pie

I can say that this is almost the same as Zucchini pie with tuna just tuna changed to chicken. Also I can say that I found out it only after a few times I baked this pie. Their taste are very different. They both are favourites in our family. Just now I bake with chicken more, because my kids don”t eat tuna, but pie with the chicken eats one of my kids.

Chicken, marinated in yoghurt

I looked for good chicken marinate for a long time. And when i finally tried this, I knew that this is what I was looking for. First time we baked on the grill chicken chunks on skewers and it was delicious. The next time I prepared chicken roasts and I think I over baked and the meat was a little bit too dry. But I know what I did wrong and the next time I will do everything good 🙂 And for sure I will prepare this marinate more than one more time.

Chicken with oregano and onions

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

Chicken with cinnamon and paprika

Cinnamon always associates with Christmas. So when autumn comes, we all tend to bake apple pies which almost every time are seasoned with cinnamon. But this spice is used not only for sweets. With it you can really prepare very tasty and also healthy dishes. One of them – chicken with cinnamon and paprika. And even if you are not used to cinnamon in non sweet meals, I can say that in here it gives only a very mild aroma and a good pinch of bitterness and cosiness. And paprika has a lot of vitamin C, so it’s really good if you don’t want to get cold.
