Garlic Lemon Chicken Wed, 01/10/07 8:13 AM (permalink)
Did up some Garlic Lemon chicken last night, very tasty





Handy gadget, I love gadgets.





Chop half the garlic rather fine, it’s going in the lemon juice.








Chop the other half course, it’s going in the pan with the chicken





Hmm, have to work on taking Garlic pics





Brown chicken, then add lemon juice








Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes, uncover and cook down lemon juice





In the meantime prepare a salad





Let’s eat





John

          I'm not a fan of chicken breasts because of the problem of them drying out. Do you find this recipe doesn't cause that? It looks pretty juicy.

            I also have a problem with dried out chicken breasts and prefer roasting a whole bird. However yours looked mighty appetizing and may have to give it a try for a quick meal. Having a lemon tree in the back yard makes me look for different uses for this fruit. I picked one yesterday that weighed 1.5 lbs and though about Greek Lemon Chicken along with some rice as the meal of choice with this monster.

                I use a Jaccard tenderizer,it not only tenderizes meats but also keeps them moist when cooking. If you decide to get one make it the real McCoy, not a knockoff. The cheaper ones do not come apart for cleaning. Be careful, those blades are very sharp.

                    John, the way to photograph the garlic is to side lite it, then shot it with the camera at a 45 degree angle..

                    Learned photography from my Mom, the first ever woman photog on the L.A. Times..Many, many years ago when the men were all off to

                      Great pics. I was just next door at Krogers and they had their Rotisserie lemon garlic chicken available and I bought it. Obviously not as good as yours but it was very good and tender and the garlic and lemon did well together.

                          Thanks all,

                          Tasted better then it looks, it's easy, give it a try. It really does help to poke a bunch of holes in the chicken first with a tenderizer. If you get one be very careful with that thing, those blades are very sharp.

                              I just have one question.
                              For you and Desertdog.
                              Does your family think you are crazy for taking pictures of your dinner all the time?

                              As usual, John, I get hungry looking at your photos.

                                Naw...I just convinced them I work for the Sterns. Seriously, they think I'm a little strange about a lot of things, but I tend to be a bit.....unconventional anyway, and I've always been a shutterbug, so they are used to it.

                                  No, they know I march to a different drummer. Last time I bought a TV I purchased five 30"-32" models from five different stores, took then home and set them up so I could compare them in my living room. Selected the one I wanted and returned the others. It was a real pain in the butt lugging those things around but you really cannot judge by what you see in the store.

                                  John

                                  Uh, I'm starting to look at Tv"s again but now they are too big to do that with.
