Chicken With Lemon and Basil (Kotopoulo Lemonato)

Chicken With Lemon and Basil (Kotopoulo Lemonato) created by Chef floWer

One summer on a trip to visit our friends on Vancouver Island, they made this dish for us that they found in a Greek cookbook. It was so incredibly tasty that I had to bring it home with me. My family loves the carrots so much that I always put a few extra in the pan.

    This reminds me of a dish my mother makes, the chicken was tender and tasty. I served it with crusty bread otherwise I kept to the recipe. The only thing I forgot to do is garnish it with parsley. Thank you Kellie in SLO
