Lemon Chicken

Make on Drop
Serves 4-6 Prep Time 2 hours   Cook Time 30 minutes   Rated:

This is possibly one of my favourite recipes from Keeping it Simple. Largely because it is pretty simple...(I know, I need to expand my adjective vocabulary, but seriously, why say ‘uncomplicated’ ‘straighforward’ ‘effortless’ when you can just say ‘simple’?)

I love all things lemon and of course it is the perfect companion to a good ole roast free range chook! What are you waiting for? Dinner, is served! (And oh-so-well!!)
