Easy and quick Lemon Chicken 👌👌👌…. Enjoy making this on a holiday or any time as it can be made in jiffy, involves less work , less ingredients and easily made at home !
Simple yet delicious lip smacking restaurant style dish , proves to be a great starter or as a side dish to main course 😀..
Lemon chicken is mildly spiced with a thick sauce influenced with the aroma of lime, which makes the dish more yummy and fabulous ……There are many ways of making it. Some deep fry marinated chicken and add to seasoning and the other method is by using boiled marinated chicken then added to seasoning ,both tastes good in their own ways 😊 i here have opted for boiled chicken as it becomes tender, juicy and more tasty and kids will just love it as my elder son does😊😍….
Happy cooking and Happy eating 🍋🍗
Homemade is Happiness ❤❤❤
