Lemon Chicken

So this week I made a lot of my food from recipes that I have in cookbooks. I like to follow the recipe to see if I like it. The lemon chicken comes from a book called "Bite Me'. I felt like there was just too much lemon flavor in the recipe for my liking. I did switch it up so the recipe you find here is the recipe I used. It was still very lemony, is that a word? I'm really happy that I didn't follow the recipe exactly.

Lemon Chicken
Adapted from the book "Bite Me"

3/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup dry white wine
5 boneless skinless chicken breast

For the Chicken
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 tsp brown sugar for each chicken breast
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup dry white wine

Combine all marinade ingredients in  bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a baking pan with cooking spray. In a bowl mix the flour, salt and pepper. Remove chicken from marinade and shake some off the liquid off. Coat the chicken in flour. Shake off the excess, you want a light coating. Heat the oil in  a pan. Brown the chicken, about 3 min each side. Place in the baking pan in  a single layer. Sprinkle the brown sugar over top of each chicken breast. Mix the broth and wine in  a cup. Pour it in the baking pan but don't pour it over the chicken. Bake it for 30 min or until done.

Sauteed Green and Yellow Beans
1 bag of frozen green and yellow beans
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp light soy sauce

Heat a large pan over medium heat. Melt the butter, pour the bag of beans in the pan. Sprinkle over the lemon pepper. Mix the beans until defrosted. Add the soy sauce and mix. Cook for 3-5 more minutes.

This is my favourite way to eat beans..YUM!
