Today I am sharing a recipe for Lemon Butter Chicken from a Better Homes and Gardens 30 Minute Dinners magazine. I have been loving this magazine, and have made so many recipes from it. It is great and every single one is a hit. We have really been loving these quick and easy meals.
I am a huge fan of lemon in the spring and summer, and this recipe for Lemon Butter Chicken is a surefire winner. I hope that you love it as much as we did. Again, for those of you who are not familiar with the way I cook, this is my take on the original recipe.
Lemon Butter Chicken
8 chicken thighs
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 cup butter
2 TB olive oil
2 sliced lemons
4 TB Lemon juice
Melt butter and olive oil in 2 frying pans. Mine are not big enough to hold 8 thighs. Then turn off heat until you are ready to add the chicken.
Mix the flour, salt, and lemon pepper together in a bowl or cake pan.
Dredge you chicken in the flour mixture.
Fry the chicken in your butter / olive oil mixture, about 8 to 10 minutes on each side.
Take your chicken our of the frying pan, and add the lemon slices and cook for 2 to 3 minutes turning once and cooking until slightly browned.
Then add the chicken back to the frying pan and pour lemon juice over the chicken and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.
Place chicken on a platter arranging the cooked lemons over the top of the chicken, and then pour the pan juices over all of the chicken.
Serve with rice or pasta.
Serves 4 to 6 people
Okay, yum!!! This is so delicious. I may make it for dinner again tonight.
