Lemon Chicken

Michelle asked for a good lemon chicken recipe. I saw this made on Food Network a long time ago and it intrigued me because it uses lemon curd, one of my favorite ingredients. It is really quick and easy to make and tastes really good. I know there are thousands of good recipes for lemon chicken out there, but this is the one I keep going back to because everyone seems to love it (even though it's from Rachel Ray and my husband can't stand her because of her striking resemblance to an ex-girlfriend!) Serve with rice, and broccoli and you've got yourself a pretty mean meal. Use a good lemon curd or you can make your own. Don't know how to make lemon curd?? Of course you do, it's the same stuff you put in lemon bars.

Okayk, so I mix up the egg, lemon, sugar, flour that I normally would put in the middle of lemon bars, do I cook it before I add it to the sauce? Thanks so much jenni, I am excited!

Jenni said...

yes, I would cook the curd, in fact, my friend, Lindsey has a great lemon curd recipe/method on her Just Recipes blog.

Cant wait to try this one. Much lighter than mine....

Lindsey said...

Yes, actually, I do have a super easy, super yummy recipe for lemon curd. I'll see about providing a link.

Early last week I was thinking about lemon curd chicken. Someone had told me awhile back about a crockpot lemon chicken using lemon curd. Maybe Lizzy?

Anyway, I'll have to try this. If it has lemon curd in it, I'm sure I'll love it.

I'm going to email you a great lemon cream chicken. A little different but always super tasty and I've served it to many people -- never had someone not like it, a lot.

I didn't know what to make for dinner tonight so I thought would check your blog- sure enough you've come through again! You're the best!

Mo said...

I had a lovely time dating "that" girl for the record, and wish her all the best... I can't stand Rachel Ray mainly because she is freaking annoying. It is only a smidge weird that she looks exactly like an old girlfried.

Yeah! We just ate dinner and it was a huge hit, my husband practically licked his plate, no small feat as he has celiac disease so it is sometimes hard to find yummy recipes that modify well. Thanks so much!
