Spicy Lemon Chicken


This is a delicious Spicy Lemon Chicken recipe. The amount of dried chilies and pepper suggested by the cookbook was too mild for my liking. So, before I marinated the chicken, I had to adjust the level of spiciness to my liking. The result was perfect, not overly spicy and it did not over power the chicken’s lemony taste.

Spicy Lemon Chicken
(Printable Recipe)

Ingredients

1 Chicken (about 3 to 3 ½ lbs), cut into 8 pieces
½ Cup Fresh Lemon Juice (from about 3 lemons)
¼ Cup Olive Oil
1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (I used 1 Tbsp)
1 tsp Coarsely Ground Fresh White Pepper (I used 2 tsp)
1 tsp Sea Salt

Method

Rinse the chicken pieces, pat dry, and place in a deep pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, red pepper flakes, and white pepper. Mix well. Set aside and refrigerate ¼ Cup of the mixture, and pour the remainder over the chicken.

Place the chicken in the refrigerator and marinate for 3 hours, turning pieces every half hour.

Preheat the oven to 400˚F.

Remove the chicken from the marinade, discard the marinade, season the chicken with salt, place in a roasting pan, and roast, turning to brown on all sides. Spoon the reserved ¼ cup of lemon juice mixture over the chicken as it roasts. Test for doneness by piercing with a knife; chicken will be done when juices run clear and dark meat is tender, about an hour.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
