Everyone loves chicken. So, try this American style Crispy lemon chicken recipe that can be prepared within 30 minutes with very few ingredients. Also, it’s so tasty…
Here is my new favorite chicken recipe. It can be easily made at home and in a very short time. That is, if you have less time on hand, you can make this chicken recipe made with garlic and lemon for dinner very quickly. This is what I claim to say that you have never tasted such a delicious and low carbohydrate chicken recipe like this.
Chicken Thighs Or Breasts?
This lemon chicken can be made with any type of chicken if desired. However, I often recommend using the chicken breast as it is more soft and juicy. But in this recipe, I would suggest using chicken thighs. It’s true that buying chicken thighs from the market especially costs a little more, so you can use chicken breast if you want.
Can you add vegetables to the skillet?
This same seasoning works great on vegetables as well so you can create an entire dinner in just one skillet. Be sure to make a separate batch of the marinade for vegetables to avoid cross-contamination. Vegetables that work well, diced red potatoes, zucchini, green beans, and asparagus.
