Lemon Chicken
Thursday, June 16, 2016

Today I'm sharing one of Sandy's Mum's  recipes.

Aside from being delicious, it's simple and packed full of lemon chicken goodness.

Just my kind of recipe :)



Prep time

15 Minutes

Cook time

1 Hour

Total time

1 Hour 15 Minutes


1 large butterflied chicken
1T olive oil (or similar)
Generous pinch of rock salt
1c lemon juice
Zest of 2 lemons
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1t rosemary, finely chopped
1/2t ground black pepper
2T flour
50g butter


Place the prepared chicken in a ceramic or glass oven-proof dish.

Pour over oil.

In a jug, mix together lemon juice and zest, garlic, rosemary and pepper, pour over chicken and baste a few times.

If time permits, leave the chicken to marinate for a few hours.

Sprinkle chicken with salt, then flour, then scatter with cubes of butter.

Bake for an hour at 180 C, basting often.

Check the chicken is cooked by inserting a skewer into the thickest part.  It's juices should run clear.

Rest the chicken for 10 minutes before serving.

Slice the chicken, pour over a little of the pan juices, and serve.

Accompany with a green salad and roast vegetables.
