Scoozi's Pollo Al Limone

"Lemon lovers, come on in! This is a fantastic, easy lemon chicken from Scoozi Restaurant in Chicago. Garlic, shallots and white wine accent this chicken; nice because there's not a lot to detract from the pure lemony taste. I find that there's not a ton of the sauce; if you wish to have extra to drizzle on veggies or whatever, I'd probably double the sauce ingredients. It's good with pasta or roasted potatoes and a nice green veggie."

  1. Great recipe!!! Totally satisfied my lemony,garlicky,italian chicken craving!! The house smelled wonderful!!! I served this with roasted baby asparagus and orzo tossed with a little butter, parmesan cheese, and black pepper. Delish!!!! Thanks for a GREAT recipe!!
  2. This was quick and easy and great tasting! I will definitely make it again. The only change I made was to pound the chicken to about 1/4 thickness prior to dusting with flour. I also cooked the chicken about 3/4 of the way done and then placed it in my oven at 175 degrees (on convection) and finished the cooking while preparing the sauce. I served this with a salad and gnocchi in Recipe #64196 . The alfredo and limone sauce blended very well together.
  3. Very lemony, indeed! Yum!
  4. I made this tonight and we all loved it! I made this with some spaghetti rigate that I tossed with the sauce and it was amazing! My son told me I need to work in a restaurant lol.
  5. Delightful easy recipe. Love the garlic and lemon - I did add 1 tsp oregano. I allowed the wine & broth to reduce so there was just a lovely thick sauce that was wonderful over my mashed potatoes Thanks Angie for a lovely chicken recipe. Made again 9 April 09 I cut the breast into stir fry size used no broth just increased the wine a bit. delicious do again & again recipe
