Lemon Cilantro Chicken
Transcript of Lemon Cilantro Chicken
I saw that I had some lemons that were starting to go bad.
I also have a bag of fresh cilantro I need to use. So I thought…. Lemon Cilantro Chicken!
I’ve never made this dish before but I can successfully say I did it last night and I’ll show you how too! 1 Lemon/Lemon Juice 2 Chicken Breasts Cilantro Mustard Brown Rice Broccoli Products Cilantro
Cilantro is from fresh&easy. It is only $0.98 and comes fresh. Mustard
Imported mustard from Germany, you can order online and when its empty, the container serves as a great cup! Brown Rice
This is my first time using this rice from f&e. It's good but just remember it takes 40 minutes to cook. Broccoli
I love the broccoli from fresh&easy. I believe it's no more than $3 and lasts a good long time. Step 1: Defrost the Chicken
Two ways you can go about defrosting:
1. If you remember in the morning, just grab the frozen chicken and let it sit in the fridge till you are ready for dinner.
2. If you're like me and don't remember, or can't figure out what to make till the moment of, then grab the chicken and let it soak in warm water. Make sure to flip the chicken so both sides defrost. I personally don't like defrosting in the microwave.
Let the chicken defrost for about 30 minutes or until its not frozen Step 2: Start the Rice
Get started on the rice as early as possible since it takes a while to cook.
If you have a rice cooker, just put a cup of rice in and add water or chicken broth. I prefer chicken broth just because it adds more flavor. Put enough liquid to cover all the rice.
While it is cooking, check on the rice periodically in case you need to add more liquid, otherwise the rice will burn.
If you don't have a rice cook, get a pot and boil the water and add the rice and cook for 40 minutes. Step 3: Make the Sauce
When I made this, it was completely experimental.
I got 1 full lemon and some lemon juice to make half a cup of lemon.
I knew the lemon would not be enough to stick to the chicken so I got about a spoonful of mustard.
Add your seasonings and cilantro to the sauce. Mix till the mustard dissolves.
Be sure to taste as you go. I love lemons so I enjoy the sourness. If you don't, add more mustard or maybe even some sugar for sweetness. Step 4: Marinate the Chicken
(This will be easier if you have a big bowl.
I only have a small bowl so I could only do one chicken at a time.) Place the chickens into the bowl, let them soak for about 5 minutes. Be sure to flip so both sides soak. Extras/Seasonings Seasonings are fresh&easy's garlic salt and some garlic powder. Lots of Garlic tonight! Let's be honest, there's some downtime when cooking. Treat yourself to some Kahlua and cream. I like mine with lots of chocolate so I add some chocolate syrup. This is the only chicken broth I use. You can't go wrong with it. You can get a case at Costco. I have to admit, I'm not sure where I found this oil. But it's amazing! I only use it when I'm cooking with lemon. It makes your dish taste so flavorful!
Of course regular oil will work too. Step 5:
Since I’m using lemons, I’m going to use my favorite lemon oil. Don’t worry any oil will do just be careful not to use a lot. Oil and the acidity in lemon don’t mix well. Heat the pan and when you’re ready for the chicken turn down the flame. Step 6:
Make sure the heat is turned down otherwise the oil will jump all over the place! Step 7:
The chicken most likely will take 20 minutes.
When both chickens are on the pan pour all the sauce in the pan. My suggestion: let the chickens cook till all the sauce is absorbed but keep your eye on it cause the sauce absorbs fast and when all the liquid is gone the pan, and your food, will burn! Step 8:
The sides take the shortest amount of time so start those when your chicken is almost done. Tonight I had broccoli but the choice is yours!
For fresh veggies put them in a bowl with a little water for steaming and put in the microwave for 2 minutes. For canned food put in a stove pot and cook.
I personally don't add anything to the veggies, no butter no salt. It's my personal preference because I can get flavor from mixing the veggies with the chicken sauce. Step 9:
Don’t forget to flip the chicken. You should only flip the chicken once. When all the sauce is sucked up get a knife and cut in the middle (thickest part) and check to make sure there’s no pink/red. Step 10:
Check up on everything and make sure it’s all nice and warm. Grab some plates and serve! Yum!
