Best Chicken Ever
I have used this recipe many, many times and mentioned it in my blog but it deserves its own mention as it so good and so tender and so absolutely easy and versatile. I eat it hot or cold or freeze it for popping into salads. Freeze juices too – separately – for adding to soups stews or as a gravy. Always cook my chicken like this now and it impressed my mother – the great cook – when she came out of hospital recently.
Take a chicken breast or two.
Place on a piece of aluminum/tin foil.
Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Pour over juice of half a lemon.
Add 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil.
Wrap chicken in the foil.
Cook for around 30 minutes.
Eat with the juices spooned over when hot (great with quinoa) or let chicken go cold and chop into bite-sized pieces and mix into a salad – using the juices as dressing.
