In our house, chicken is a family meal staple. We love it, the kids love it, and it’s easy to make. It’s also something that can be prepared in totally diverse ways, making it a fantastic regular for the dining table because our family is less likely to get bored of it than things that always taste the same. That’s why we always have our eyes peeled for great new recipes to try! Lately, we’ve been on a huge lemon kick menu-wide in our house and the chicken we’re prepping is no exception.
Just in case you adore the idea of making lemon seasoned or flavoured chicken just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best refreshing, citrus-based recipes we’ve come across so far in our ongoing search for taste inspiration!
1. Quick and easy lemon chicken
Are you in a hurry but still intent on adding some great flavour to the table? Perhaps you’re actually just new to the cooking game so you’d like to start with the basics. In either case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how The Stay at Home Chef made this fantastic (and surprisingly simple) quick and easy lemon chicken recipe.
2. Creamy lemon chicken piccatta
Have you always been of the opinion that lemon flavoured things taste best when they’re a little creamier? In that case, we have a feeling this delicious creamy lemon chicken piccatta recipe outlined step by step on Chicken Recipes might be a little more up your alley! This chicken is lightly breaded, but they outline the concept nice and easily for you, so don’t be intimidated.
3. 15-minute garlic lemon chicken
Just because you’re making something with lots of refreshing lemon flavour doesn’t have to mean that lemon is the sole flavour that comes through with each bite! We’re also huge garlic lovers, so we’re sure you can imagine just how excited we were when we stumbled across this wonderfully fragrant garlic lemon chicken recipe from KitchMe, especially because it really does only take 15 minutes to prepare!
4. Lemon chicken and veggies
If you’re going to add a splash of mouthwatering lemon flavour to part of your meal, would you actually rather take that idea to the next level and make other parts of the dish taste like lemon too? In that case, we think you’ll get a huge kick out of the way Lil’ Luna baked their chicken and veggies together in one dish so that they share the same great lemon flavour all around the plate.
