Wellness Wednesdays: Light & Zesty Lemon Chicken

Light and Zesty Lemon Chicken


I4 chicken breasts
2 large onions
3-5 cloves of garlic
2 lemons
3 egg yolks
Pasta or rice
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 chicken stock cube
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Prep Day: Finely chop onions and crush garlic. Label, package and freeze. Chop chicken, label, package, and freeze.

Serve Day: Put pasta or rice on to boil. Fry onion and garlic soft in olive oil. Add chopped chicken, coriander, pepper, ginger, zest of both lemons. Dissolve stock cube in 1/3 pint of hot water. When chicken is thoroughly cooked, add stock. Squeeze juice of both lemons into a small bowl. Add remaining lemon flesh to chicken. Add 3 egg yolks to lemon juice and whisk with fork. Just prior to pasta being cooked add egg yolk & juice to chicken. The mixture will now thicken after 2 minutes or so. Serve pasta or rice on plate then cover with zesty lemon chicken.

I added some cherry tomatoes and parm.



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
