This recipe was given to me by a chef in a Chicago restaurant and I cant believe I dont remember which one. But it is just great! Preparation/Cooking time does not include marination time of 2 hours.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thoroughly wash and dry all chicken pieces.
  2. Cut 2 lemons into round slices. (Use other 2 lemons for making lemon juice).
  3. Salt and pepper chicken on both sides.
  4. Place chicken meat side up in a glass casserole dish.
  5. Mix oil, lemon juice, parsley.
