Lemon chicken

I like chicken and rice so tonight I decided to make lemon chicken. I found a recipe and changed it a little. I think it turned out tasting really good. I even took pictures to show you, in case you want to try it. First make some rice. I used Rice a Roni wild rice. It is easy to make you just put the rice in a pan with a tbsp of butter add the water (amount on the box). Boil it and cover it and cook on simmer for 25 to 30 minutes.

This is my recipe for Lemon Chicken.

1 large chicken breast. Slice it into even size pieces. This will serve 2.

3/4 cup of chicken broth.

I juiced 2 lemons, the recipe called for 1/2 cup but I don’t think mine came out to 1/2 cup. But they used 1 pound of chicken, I didn’t.

The lemon juice was pretty sour so I put in 4 spoons of sugar. Just put in a spoon at a time and taste it to see if you like it because you might end up with more juice.

A few shakes of garlic powder. I don’t measure, I just put on what I like.

1/4 cup of sour cream

1 tbsp butter

1 small onion, chop it up.

1 spoon of corn starch in a little water, probably 1/4cup.


Cook up the onion till it is soft and then remove it from the pan and put it in a bowl for later. You have to watch it or it will start to burn.

Then you cook up the chicken. Just keep stirring it till it is cooked.

Put the onions back in when the chicked in almost done. Then pour in the chicken broth and 1 tbsp butter and your 1/4 cup of sour cream. A 1/4 cup is 4 tablespoons.

Then put a couple of shakes of garlic power over the chicken. Now add your lemon juice, sweetened.

Yummm, so lemony. 

Then I added the corn starch in a little water to thicken it up. This is what it looks like.

I put the rice down first and then put my serving over the rice.

 I serve it with buttered heated up tortillas. I just pull off a piece of tortilla and put it in the juice. It tasted good for a change. I will make this again.

I love to make videos, cooking ones and legos ones. I like to draw and paint and make crafts and read blogs. I have a Nikon D80. I also use my new Canon Rebel. I don't really notice not much difference in pictures between the Nikon D80 but I bought for the video use. You can not use Nikon to make a video, it is not on the camera.
