Chicken With Lemon, Honey and Carrots

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

This is a very tasty chicken dish! Throw in some canned, drained or fresh sauteed mushrooms. Be certain to use only low-sodium chicken broth for this. Make sure you have a large enough skillet to hold the chicken and carrots, I make this on my large electric skillet. You will love this!

This is great. I used chicken thighs instead, so they cooked quick. Can be put on top of rice.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl or cup mix together 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, paprika, cinnamon and black pepper; rub into chicken pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet and brown the chicken pieces in two batches, turning once; transfer to a plate.

  5. Return the chicken (skin sides up) to the skillet, tossing the onions and carrots around the chicken.
  6. Stir the water or broth, lemon juice and honey together until blended, and add to the skillet; cook over medium heat, covered until chicken is fully cooked and the carrots are tender (about 25-30 minutes).
  7. Season with more salt to taste if desired.
