1/2 Photos of The Infamous Lemon Chicken Recipe
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.
