Lemon Chicken.


Print Friendly and PDF

Lemon chicken; is a quick and easy spicy citrusy chicken fry, especially when you do not have "time" to marinate the chicken for a few hours...15 minutes of marination and the chicken is juicy, tender, and soft.

For a quick appetizer; this is my go to recipe.....the lemon juice makes the chicken tender and juicy....and yes you need lots of lemon!!

There is nothing extra in the recipe other than Kashmiri chilly powder, turmeric, pepper, ginger/garlic, salt.....and lots and lots of lemon juice!

Note: Kashmiri Chilly is what I recommend for this recipe...as it has less heat and rich color.
