We had guests, a family of three, for dinner few weeks ago and I concocted this garlicky lemon-parsley chicken to serve with Fettuccine Alfredo and salad greens with feta cheese. I am not saying it’s original but I swear I only had few ingredients to go with chicken wings in the fridge and thought combining them together would make a fantastic dish that could complement creamy Fettuccine. So right. It was such a big hit.
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (or more – juice of 1 lemon)
1 bulb garlic, peeled and crushed
1 tsp chopped fresh parsley
In a bowl, mix thyme, salt, and pepper. Rub the mixture into chicken. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat olive oil in a skillet. Fry garlic until aromatic. Add chicken and brown for about 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of water and lemon juice. Bring the mixture to boil then turn heat to low and simmer until chicken is tender. Add parsley and simmer for another 5 minutes. Serve garnished with more chopped parsley.
