Friends and family love this tangy lemon chicken recipe. For those who love lots of sauce on rice this recipe is for you.

  • 4 tblspn flour
  • 4 tbspn tblpsn paprika
  • half to 3/4 melted butter
  • 3 tbspn soya sauce
  • 2 tbspn olive oil
  • 4 crushed garlic

  • bit chopped parsley


  1. In a large plastic bag shake the flour, paprika, s+p.
  2. Place chicken one by one in the bag and shake till coated.
  3. Place chicken in a roasting dish covering the chicken with melted butter and bake for 20 mins in moderate oven. Then remove.
  4. In a bowl mix the lemon juice, soya sauce, grated lemon rind, oil and crushed garlic and pour over the chicken. Place back in oven for a further 30 mins.
  5. Serve in shallow bowls (like spaghetti bowls) with Basmati rice. Sprinkle with parsley if you want some colour.


I usually cook this with chicken breasts but equally as good using a jointed chicken provided it's jointed and chopped into smaller pieces.
