Dinner

So we put together dinner.  Well my wife started and left everything on the counter for me to cook.  Not only was it good and healthy but the kids liked it and I had leftovers for lunch.

Lemon Chicken
She got the recipe here
Essentially you marinate a whole chicken with salt and lemon juice.  Our lemon tree is full so this was a perfect recipe for us.  Marinate it overnight.

Oven to 425.  Make a Gremolata which is a combination of parsley, garlic and lemon zest and rub over the chicken with butter.

For the gremolata you can zest one lemon, finely chop one bunch of flat leaf parsley and mince one clove of garlic.  You can add more of either ingredient to you liking and add salt as needed.

Cook 40 minutes then cover and reduce heat to 375 degrees.  Baste and cook until meat is 170 degrees

Potatoes
I had a bag of potatoes and 15 minutes.  Into the microwave for 5 minutes.  Cut them into quarters.  Heated a pan with butter and grape-seed oil.  In go the potatoes and brown one side.  I then added about a 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped rosemary and 2 cloves of minced garlic and sauteed until garlic was browned.

Broccoli
Heated the water and steamed for 3 minutes.

Dinner on the table.  Kids ate the legs and potatoes.  It was healthy, GF and delicious and I had leftovers for lunch the next day and enough scraps for chicken salad the following day.

Get cooking,
