    Grimm's Restaurant Tales's Note:

    When my father remarried he would sometimes complain to me about finding my mother's lemon chicken recipe. The real secret here being that I had LOST my mother's recipe box...a crime punishable by walking the plank in my family. Of course I didn't remember eating it or how it tasted since I was 6 when they divorced and she couldn't remember the ingredients. He described to me a sweet glazy sauce that covered the chicken which she served over rice. With the help of my step-mother we "recreated" this dish using Lipton soup and sauce mixes in the lemon flavor. I was at peace until Lipton discontinued this flavor and was again harassed to FIND THAT RECIPE your mother made! Finally I was reaching up in the counter for a martini glass at my aunts house when a small box came crashing down on my head... my family recipes along with the suprisingly easy "Infamous Lemon Chicken".I had no idea these were the few ingredients that had been haunting me. Dad this one's for you.

      My roomate made this one night (she is not an avid cooker...) and it turned out great! So I have made this for my boyfriend, friends, family and they ALL ask for the recipe and ask me to make it again! I don't like that it's so high in fat (lotsa butter)...but what can ya do? It's worth it! The mushrooms turn out sooo good that even people who hate mushrooms will eat them! If you are a big lemon lover this is for you. The more I make this, the more fresh squeezed lemon juice I add. The more I add, the better it gets it seems. (Within reason!) Also, the first time I made this I got rid of the butter I browned the chicken in and melted new butter before I added the rest of the ingredients and it just was not as good as keeping the same butter the whole time!

      This was a nice and quick weeknight meal. My husband and daughter didn't like it but I thought it was great. I guess I'm the only one in my family that likes lemon chicken. I'll make it again when I'm on my own for dinner one night. Next time I might cut the sugar just a bit. Thanks for posting.
