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.
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)
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!
