bone-in chicken parts
Everyone liked this! I did cut the butter in half and still had plenty of sauce - maybe it depends on the size chicken pieces you're using (I cooked drumsticks). I followed the advice of another reviewer and turned the oven up to 375 for the last 15 minutes to brown the chicken more.
I browned one chicken and used the leavings from that to make the sauce. I added Louisiana wing sauce, some orange marmalade, lemon pepper seasoning and flour to this..this is a partial recipe from orange Asian chicken sauce to give the sauce a bit more taste for me and my family.
I also used chicken breasts for this one. I felt the sauce was a little too thin and could have used more flavor. If I did this one again, I might brown the chicken and add a mixture of cornstarch and water to the sauce to give it more consistency.
Excellent!! Very moist and full of flavor!! This is one recipe that I will make over and over again. The sauce is wonderful!! I turned the oven up to 375 degrees the last l5 minutes of bake time, just enough to brown the top of the chicken. Top with sauce when serving. Great with baked potatoes. Very easy and quick recipe. Thanks for sharing.
I prepared the butter, onion, honey, almonds and lemon on the stove-top as directed and poured it over my frozen chicken breasts until they reached room temperature. Then baked as directed. BOY was this an awesome dish! Juicy, tender, and comforting. I'll definitely make this again and I won't hesitate making it for guests. Thanks CRAFTYGIRL!
A wonderful dish. My girlfriend and I prepared this meal for 13 people and not one of them stopped eating until their belts were loosened. Bravo. Try adding some shaved lemon peel to it.
This is definitely a tasty, simple dish. I made half the sauce with two chicken breasts cut in half. Because they were breasts, not thick pieces of chicken, I only cooked it for a half hour total, and they were perfect. I halved the butter and mixed in a Tbsp of cornstarch with the lemon juice before adding and that helped thicken it up a little, but I'll add more cornstarch next time. I think the sauce was really good. Next time I'll cut up the chicken in pieces, brown them and cook them on the stove and just addd the sauce to the chicken pieces, serve it over rice, and call it lemon chicken. :) I think that's a more suitable name for the flavor, but whatever you call it, it's good.
Can't get much easier than this. Great flavor. We were very pleased with this. Reheated well the next day, too. We will definitely make this again!
