The best lemon chicken recipes - 7 recipes

Lemon chicken is one of my mother's masterpiece recipes. It was always a Sunday lunch staple when I was growing up. Her recipe for lemon chicken is surprisingly simple; the key is to first season the chicken liberally with salt and pepper. Then she rolls the lemon between her hands to make it juicier, pokes holes in it with a fork, and then carefully puts the lemon into the chicken cavity. This way, as the chicken slowly roasts, the lemon releases its juices as it heats, thereby seasoning the chicken from the inside. The result is a finger-licking-good roast chicken, and almost never any leftovers! This recipe for lemon chicken is best served with steamed asparagus and garlicky roast potatoes, but feel free to add your favorite side dishes!
