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 it has less heat and rich color.
Author: Nisa Homey
Chicken: About 300 gms, cut into small pieces.
Kashmiri Chilly powder: 2 heaped tsp.
Pepper Powder: 1/2 tsp.
Ginger-garlic paste: 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder: 1/4 tsp.
Lemon: Juice of 3 lemon.
Salt: 1/2 tsp or as needed.
Coconut oil for frying: As needed.

Squeeze out the lime into a bowl, add Kashmiri chilly powder, pepper, turmeric, and salt...mix well. Then add the chicken . Mix everything together. Keep for 10-15 minutes.....the lime juice will make the chicken tender and juicy (if there is time marinate longer). Heat a pan with coconut oil and deep fry the chicken pieces.

Serve hot!!
Citrusy chicken is ready!!
