Lemon Chicken


This lemon chicken is very, very, very, very good!  It was a huge hit with the entire family and I can't always say that with every meal.  The chicken roasted perfectly, was very moist and had a great lemon flavor.  I used a whole chicken with cut up pieces because we like the white and dark meat.  But use your favorite chicken pieces.  This lemon chicken was seriously so good and I will be making this over and over again.

I found this recipe on the blog, Simply Recipes.  


Note:  The only change I made was to double the marinade.  I used half to marinate the chicken and put aside the other half for basting the chicken.  I felt there was not enough marinade to cover the chicken and baste so I doubled it and it was enough to do both.  


I paired the lemon chicken with Charred Vegetable Rice.  It made for happy plates and happy faces.

Enjoy!

Mom's Cooking Club Lesson:  This chicken marinates for 2 hours.  Even though it's an easy meal to prepare, make sure you leave time for the chicken to marinate because that's what gives it the wonderful lemon flavor you want in lemon chicken.

My two favourites in one dish...chciken and lemon. Just add my other obsession with some lemon potatoes and I would be in heaven.

You can't go wrong with a delicious chicken dish and this one sounds delicious. I love how you used the marinade to baste the chicken with as I can imagine how much more flavor it gave. Great idea!
