Lemon chicken recipe

Lemon chicken recipe is quick and tasty. I love to cook this chicken recipe because it really fills up your kitchen with a nice smell of lemon.

Some lemon chicken recipes requires the use of marinade for several hours, but I wrote this one for convenience. You can squeeze a fresh lemon for juice or use some lemon juice. Enjoy!

Total time: 35 min

Ingredients (2 servings):

1/4 cup lemon juice or 1 lemon
1 clove garlic
2 boneless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon of thyme
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/4 cup of water
olive oil
salt and pepper
soy sauce (optional)


Part 1 (5 min)
Defrost chicken breasts (1). Measure out the rice (2). Put some water in the pot (3) and wash it by stirring with your hands (4). Decant the wash water (5) and add appropriate amount of water (I usually add 3/4 cup of water for 1 cup of rice, but check your rice cooker manual). Set the rice to cook (6).

Part 2 (15 min)
Pour olive oil in the saucepan (1) and turn on the low heat (2). The chicken should be done defrosting. Chop the chicken on the cutting board (3). Add the chicken to the saucepan stir it around the pot (4). Turn the heat up to medium (5) and cook the chicken for 10 min. While the chicken is cooking, squeeze some lemon juice into a measuring cup (6) and dice the garlic (7). Add sugar to lemon juice (8). After the chicken has been cooked for 10 min, add lemon juice to the saucepan. Use the same measuring cup and fill up with a bit of water, and then pour it into the saucepan (this washes out the remaining lemon juice and sugar). Add garlic and thyme (9).
