Paleo Lemon Chicken

Every once in a while I have a craving for food that I know isn't good for me, yet I still long for the flavors from long ago! One of these is a lemon chicken dish from P.F. Changs.

Over a year ago I began eating a Paleo diet. and I have never felt better! When the craving hit I knew that I needed to spring into action and create a version of Lemon chicken that met my Paleo criteria.

I found a great recipe at Paleo diet lifestyle and tweaked it just a bit.

Lemon chicken recipe

1/4 cup butter (or ghee), tallow, coconut oil or poultry fat;
4 Chicken breasts sliced
2 cups onions, sliced thin;
20 gloves garlic, minced 
1/2 cup lemon juice;
2 extra lemons, thickly sliced (remove seeds with the tip of a knife);
1 1/2 cups chicken stock;
1 tsp basil
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste;

Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  • Melt the first  1/4 cup fat in a large and hot pan and brown the chicken pieces on all sides. It will take about 6 minutes total. Set the chicken aside.
  • Cook the onions until soft, about 3 minutes, and make sure to scrape all the delicious chicken bits off the pan while doing so.
  • Add the garlic and cook for about a minute, until fragrant. You can season with salt and pepper at this point.
  • Add the chicken stock, basil and lemon juice and return the chicken to the pan.
  • Bring to a simmer and put the pan, covered, in the hot oven for about 20 minutes.
  • Remove the lid, add the lemon slices and bake for another 15 to 20 minutes uncovered.
Serve the chicken with the garlic and lemon sauce as well as with some of the lemon slices.
Honestly this is an amazing recipe!  Love, Love, Love it! 

It reminds me that nothing tastes as good as something that is carefully prepared with fresh ingredients. 

Just like how God has carefully planned and prepared a perfect place for us that we will enjoy!

My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? John 14:2
