Lemon Pepper Chicken with Lemon Sauce

I am so excited about this recipe I found!! I am always looking for sauces that are gluten free and dairy free, but I really struggle to find any that taste good! I finally found one I was interested in trying and it's really yummy!!

I found it in Cooking Light and they describe it as , "the classic Greek lemon-egg soup, avgolemono." The chef stated that this sauce could be put on everything...chicken, fish, mashed potatoes, vegetables, etc. I paired our chicken meal with mashed new red potatoes and steamed broccoli and it was fabulous!

This dish and the sauce is gluten free (if you use a Gluten Free chicken stock) and dairy free. This was a fairly easy dish to make and I will definitely make it again!

Ingredients for Chicken

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Pepper seasoning
  • Salt and pepper (for taste)
Ingredients for Lemon Sauce
  • 2 cups of unsalted chicken stock
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of grated lemon zest
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp of kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon of olive oil


Directions for Chicken and Lemon Sauce
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place your chicken breasts in a 9x13 glass Pyrex dish. 
  • Sprinkle salt and pepper on chicken for taste.
  • Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of Lemon Pepper seasoning evenly across the 4 pieces of chicken.
  • Bake Chicken for 40 to 45 minutes until done and no longer pink.
  • About 20 minutes into your chicken baking, you are ready to start making the Lemon Sauce.
  • Heat the chicken stock over medium-high heat in a heavy medium saucepan until tiny bubbles form around the edge. Do Not Boil.
  • Combine the eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt in a medium bowl.
  • Whisk until the eggs are frothy and lighter in color.
  • Ladle about a cup of the hot chicken stock into the egg mixture 1/4 cup at a time, while stirring constantly (but not too vigorously) with a whisk.
  • Lower the heat on the remaining chicken stock to as low as possible. Wait for 2 minutes, and then add the egg, lemon and stock mixture back to the pot, stirring to combine.
  • Warm the sauce gently until it coats a spoon.
  • Whisk in the olive oil to finish.
  • When the chicken is done cooking, pour the desired amount of lemon sauce on top of the chicken and serve.
  • Store remaining lemon sauce in the refrigerator for future use. Use within 3 days.

Very Veggie Chicken Noodle Soup

Ok, it's REALLY cold outside! Even though we are in Phoenix, we went from summer weather in the low 90's to fall weather in the upper 60's. But it's getting to the mid 30's at night!! Cold weather means it's time to pull out the soup recipes! I'm dedicating this recipe for all my friends and family in the state of Tennessee. They have had a really early winter and it's really cold there!

I make this recipe gluten Free by using Gluten Free noodles and Gluten Free chicken broth. I do not advise using rice noodles for this one because they turn to mush sitting in the broth. Ronzoni Gluten Free Pasta is the best pasta I have found for making soups.

This recipe is packed full of vegetables and has a fantastic taste. I love the fact that this recipe calls for rotisserie chicken. It saves you a lot of time in the kitchen and it tastes really good! I hope this recipe helps you stay good and warm this fall and winter season! Enjoy!


Ingredients:

  • 2 boxes (32 oz. each reduced-sodium chicken broth)
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  •  1 onion
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 yellow squash
  •  ½ bunch asparagus
  • 1 zucchini
  • ¼ lb penne pasta (If you are going gluten free, Ronzoni Gluten Free Pasta is fantastic!)
  • 1 Rotisserie Chicken (already cooked)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper


Directions:

In a large sauce pot, combine the chicken broth and 4 springs of fresh thyme. Turn to medium heat and let simmer.

Meanwhile, mince the onion, slice the carrots, dice the squash, cut the zucchini into long thin slices and and chop the ends of the asparagus off.

In a separate pot, bring water to a boil and cook the penne pasta. While the pasta is cooking, shred your Rotisserie Chicken.

Add the salt, pepper, onion and carrots to the chicken broth. Once the onion and carrots are tender, add the squash, asparagus, zucchini, shredded chicken and the penne pasta. Reduce the heat to low.

Let cook for 10 minutes. Remove the fresh thyme sprigs. Add freshly chopped chives and parsley. Season with additional salt, pepper and lemon juice, if desired. Refrigerate any leftovers.

This one is super interesting because of the garlic and lemon. The taste came out amazing and the chicken was very tender. This one is gluten free, as long as your chicken broth has no gluten included. It took me 10 minutes to prep this one and then off I went with my day!

In a bowl mix the garlic, juice of the lemon, rosemary and salt & pepper to taste. Save the lemon rinds. Then rub this mixture onto the chicken.

                                      

Throw the lemon rinds in the crock pot and cover. Cook on low for 5-6 hours until chicken falls off the bone.
