Ginger Chicken

I found this recipe in the Boston Globe Food Section.

The chicken legs were on sale so that is what I used.

15 chicken legs

1 tablespoons peanut oil

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 two inch piece of minced fresh ginger

2 cloves minced garlic

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sesame seeds (optional)

Mix  the oil, honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, salt and red pepper together in a big bowl.

Dry the chicken

Add them to the sauce and coat well

Place the chicken on a lined baking sheet

Roast at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes turning often.

Sprinkle with sesame seeds if you want to.

I used non stick foil to line the pan and didn’t use the sesame seeds

They are easy and can be marinated over night

Now everyone should buy the globe on Wednesday.

Lemon Chicken

Everyone has their own chicken lemon recipe.

I have many but I like this one today. Maybe tomorrow I will like one of the other recipes.

I’m just wild and crazy.

This is a big recipe for my big family and the leftovers are the best.

5 pounds of thin sliced boneless chicken breasts

1 1/2 cup flour

One teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

One teaspoon garlic powder

Olive oil

8 cloves of minced garlic

The zest of three lemons

Juice of five lemons

1 1/2 cups of good white wine

2 sticks  of butter

48 ounces chicken broth

Salt and pepper to taste

5 tablespoons  of capers with their juice

Slices or wedges of one lemon

Mix the flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder

Heat a nonstick skillet with 5 tablespoons of olive oil

Lightly flour the chicken, shaking all the excess flour off the chicken.

Lightly brown on both sides

Place in a dish and set aside

Melt the butter in a large oven proof pan with a good lid.

Add  the  lemon zest

Cook for two minutes

Add the wine and let cook till it is halfway evaporated

Add the chicken stock and capers and bring to a boil

Add the lemon juice and lemon slices.

Take off the heat.

Add all the cooked chicken and make sure it is all submerged in the sauce.

Cover the pan and place in a 350 degree oven for one hour.

Boil the pasta and drain

Brown the minced garlic in 1/3 cup olive oil

Pour this over the pasta and place in a large deep platter

Place some of the chicken sauce on the pasta and toss

Add the chicken on top

This will disappear
