Lemon Chicken Recipe


This delicious lemon chicken recipe uses a pour-over lemon sauce as the featured flavor. Each bite is filled with tart and tangy lemon that keeps your taste buds tingling.

It avoids the higher calorie versions that call for breading and frying the chicken, and in doing so brings out the fantastic lemon taste.

This is perfect over egg noodles or rice because stronger sauces need somewhat neutral side dishes to keep the flavors of the meal in balance.
