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!

Chicken and rice stew with chanterelles

At first glance it seems that it is simple pilaf with chicken. But lemon and hot chilli sauce gives spicy taste to the dish. I prepared it already two times: first – without mushrooms, because my hubby was at home, the second – with mushrooms, because I was all alone 🙂 Both times it was delicious. Don’t know about other kids, by mine don’t like spicy dishes, so I didn’t even asked to taste 🙂

Hearts and carrot stew

If the past time was a healthy recipe, now it’s the cheap one. After all, you need to have all kinds of options. I made this stew for three times because we couldn’t decided we like it or not. The second time I made it, carrots had too strong taste and we didn’t like it. So choose young, crisp and tasty carrots and everything will be fine. Our children do not eat this sort of misunderstandings , so me and my hubby enjoyed it for lunch. And the last time it was so delicious that we ate more than we should. 🙂

Spicy chicken wings

When the weather was not so warm, we still wanted something to snack with beer. So I corrected a little bit the recipe and baked this wings in the oven. Now I think that we should repeat them, just bake this time on the grill. Anyway in the marinate used so many spices that I was afraid of them at first, but wings baked so good that even my hubby who hates caraway, couldn’t say anything bad about them 🙂

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.

Baked chicken livers with onion and tomato sauce

From the childhood we all know that livers are very healthy to eat, but knowing doesn’t mean that you do it. One day I decided to make chicken liver pate and they were very delicious but I had some liver leftover and started to look for some new recipe. I found it in one of my favourite books and it looked very similar to the dish that my mom used to make when I was a child. So I gave it a try and me and my hubby enjoyed it a lot! Sadly but my kids didn’t understand us and didn’t eat. But anyway now this recipe is one of my favourites, because it’s so quick that for making and eating it I spend less than an hour.
