Lemon Chicken

*From the Archives of JustUsOwls*

First I’ll say I’m Italian and I don’t use no stinking recipe! 😉 Though I do have a few that I enjoy.  This one is one of my own creation.

Padre Eddie’s Famous Lemon Chicken
Warning: this will cause puckering…it’s not a sweet dish but a sour.

Ingredients:
5-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs: cut into small cubes or nugget size
2-4 clove of garlic chopped
1 Spanish/Red Onion cut into rings (thickness is your preference)
6-7 fresh lemons
1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
1 tablespoon of oregano and rosemary (fresh if possible)

Instructions:
Cut 3-4 of your lemons into wedges and remove the meat from the rind. Use the juice of 1-2 lemons over your chicken while cooking. The remaining lemons cut into wedges and use them as a garnish.

In a good size sauté pan (must have a lid), add olive oil, garlic, and onions. Let cook about 1 minute. Add chicken and lemon meat; sprinkle with spices, and slowly simmer (covered) until chicken is done (stir occasionally). Onions should be nice and caramelized by the time you serve.

Serve over noodles or rice. For a side dish, a fresh salad will touch off this dish.

Salt and or Pepper to taste. If you enjoy Sangria or Raspberry Wine serve with this dish and enjoy!

  1. Padre, So, so similar to my Mom’s family recipe we call “Chicken Oregano”! I can taste it just reading this! I love it best on the grill. What I’ve done to add to the tang, just a tad of red wine vinegar….to keep those lips puckered & that tongue opening off the top of the palate!!!!!!!!!!!! Delish!!! Bravo! Phil
