Sorry that "tomorrow" turned into a couple days for our recipe exchange. We have had beautiful weather here for the last couple days and have been taking advantage of it to the fullest. This morning in the middle of our homeschooling, a friend of mine called to see if she could pick up Jacob to go with them to the zoo. At first I said yes, then thought for a minute and said "we'll all go". It was so last minute, but so much fun! When I told Abbey we were going she asked "I can go mommy?" She then hugged me for about 3 minutes. She was beaming all day as she ran around with her brother and friends as I was too as I watched her. I will post some pictures tomorrow (or when the weather isn't so nice :) from our day.
So back to recipes...
(I was recently looking back at old pictures and found this picture of Abbey eating Lemon Chicken. It was taken last summer, a few months before she was diagnosed. Isn't she sweet?! :)
* 4 chicken breasts (The chicken breast that we buy are always so thick and we like our chicken thinner so I always filet it all the way through to make it thinner)
* 1 egg
* 7 tbls. lemon juice
* 3/4 cup flour
* 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
* 1/2 tsp. paprika
* 1/4 cup butter
* 6 tsp. chic bouillon granules
* 1 1/2 cup boiling water
* 1 box pasta of your choice
Beat egg and 1 tbls. lemon juice in bowl. On plate, mix flour, garlic powder and paprika. Dip chicken in egg/lemon mixture then coat in flour mixture. In large skillet, melt butter and brown coated chicken on both sides (med - med-high heat). In medium pot, dissolve chic bouillon in boiling water and then add remaining lemon juice (6 tbls.). Pour liquid in skillet with chicken and simmer, covered for 20 minutes, turning chicken over after 10 minutes.
Serve over hot pasta. The juice that you cook the chicken in is delicious so be sure to pour it over the pasta and chicken.
As a side note... it is a pretty salty dish (that's why Abbey loves this so much when on the steroids) so feel free to adjust the chic granules and lemon to your taste. I sometimes double the liquid part of the recipe so there is more to pour over the pasta... Abbey and Jacob often ask for just the lemon juice to put over pasta, but it is definitely better when cooked with the chicken so I like to make extra just to have :)
