Baked Lemon Chicken Thighs with Mushroom Sauce

Recipe by  

"A great chicken recipe that is moist, tastes fresh, and has a fantastic mushroom sauce! The sauce uses my mother's secret to never lumpy sauce/gravy...mixing the stock with the flour before adding it to the pan. This is a fail-proof method that has served me well over the years."

Directions

  1. Stir 1/4 cup lemon juice, salt, rosemary garlic seasoning, and oregano in a large bowl. Add chicken and enough water to cover; stir well. Cover and refrigerate chicken 4 hours to overnight. Drain and discard lemon juice brine.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a large baking dish with aluminum foil.
  3. Spread half the lemon slice in the baking dish. Arrange chicken thighs over lemon slices; top chicken thighs with remaining lemon slices.
  4. Bake chicken in preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 30 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  5. Melt light butter with olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir mushrooms, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried lemon peel in hot butter-oil mixture until mushrooms are browned and soft, 5 to 8 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, combine chicken stock and flour in a jar with a tight fitting lid; shake well. Pour mixture into mushrooms.
  7. Increase heat to medium high; simmer mushroom sauce until thickened, about 10 minutes. Serve with chicken.

  • You could just use another lemon in the sauce instead of the lemon juice and dried lemon zest, but I tend to forget to buy a third lemon.

This was a very good recipe. There is a strong lemon flavor, but it was not overpowering. I followed the recipe to the letter for the most part, but when I was getting ready to cook the chicken, I realized that I forgot to put the oregano in the brine. Oops! When the cooking time was done, the chicken looked a little too white for me and since I like crisp skin, I decided to broil the chicken. I broiled it for about 5 minutes and I achieved what I wanted. To keep my carb count down, I substituted one tablespoon of corn starch for the flour in the sauce. Armando, my better half (?) rated this recipe a 9 out of ten. He does not rate very many meals this high. All in all, a very good dinner that will grace my kitchen table again.

Awesome and easy recipe! My family lived the flavor and the easy mushroom gravy can easily be used for other meats. We served this with garlic mashed potatoes and a vegetable. Will definitely make again.
