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!

Chinese chicken salads

These salads are so easy to prepare, that you just have to make them for your lunch in the office or for a light dinner. By the way, chicken breast boils very quickly – just boil water with seasonings, put chicken breast and boil for 10 minutes. And that’s all. So you see, even with chicken breast boiling these salads are super quickly made.

Chicken, marinated in a sweet chilli sauce

We love chicken, but it’s very hard to find good chicken marinade to bake it on the grill. And know I know that it’s not the fault of the recipes, it’s because we a lot of time overbake it. The last time we baked chicken on the grill I was walking around the grill and watched that no one overbaked it 🙂 I looked strange, but… what can we do if we want to taste food good 🙂

Chicken and buckwheat stew

Sad, but true… I have to go to work again… After more than two years of vacations. But let’s look at everything from another point of view – I have to think what to take to work for lunch and what to prepare for very quick dinner. Also from now on I can bake more sweets because to drink coffee gathers many girls 🙂 But let’s talk about this dish. I boiled buckwheats yesterday, so today I made everything in 15 minutes. You can call this dish stew or cereal with chicken 🙂 We’re not used to eat buckwheats with meat, but this new taste was good 🙂 Just my hubby wanted grated cheese on top and maybe some chili 🙂

Chicken breast with curry and lemon peel

This dinner was very delicious and quick and it reminded me the spring when almost every meal was with a huge bowl of salads and a little bit meat for satiety. I baked chicken on electric grill and it was done in 10 minutes. It gave just enough time to chop my salads. I just love to have recipes that are appreciated by my family and at the same time are very quick.
