Lemon and Orange chicken 

  
It is my first time making this recipe and I actually came up with it by experimenting and testing flavors and different ways of cooking chicken. I usually always cook chicken in the oven – until today I don’t know why. Maybe I find it easier, have more control over the cooking. I’m not sure. But my oven decided to take a little break from the cooking – let’s just say you never want this to happen in your kitchen. So I started imagining recipes on the stove top only. Of course the possibilities are endless but when you want to get sticky, yummy chicken drumsticks, it is of course possible to make it in a pan. Here’s how:

  • 2 lemons sliced 
  • Juice and zest from one lemon
  • Juice and zest from one orange 
  • 2 medium onions thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup of olive
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 tbsp of honey 
  • 2 tbsp of garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp of ginger
  • 1 tbsp of Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp of spicy paprika
  • Fresh parsley 

In a large pot, heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil. Sauteed the onions until they start becoming brown. In a small bowl, mix the lemon juice, orange juice, olive oil, honey, salt, pepper, garlic powder, ginger, paprika, Italian seasoning. Pour over the chicken and toss to coat. Add the chicken pieces to the pan and cook on a medium fire for about 15min and cover.  Turn them so they don’t burn and cook for an other 15min. Serve with the lemon wedges and decorate with fresh parsley.
