Lemon Chicken served with tagliatelle – a delicious recipe

by soffiagudrun

My boyfriend was very happy after the meal the other night and the two  meals before that as well.  Since I got advise on what to cook I am a big hit in the kitchen….not that I didn´t make nice food, but making something new and try new flavors has been a big hit.  The recipe i made tonight wasn´t complicated and no ingredients i haven´t used before, but the combination and the simplicity was something I haven´t done before.  A BIG HIT I tell you.

I don´t cook much chicken, mostly because it´s hard to get a good chicken and a good one  is a lot more expensive than “crappy” chicken.  ( I have heard stories about chicken farms in Iceland) I bought a nice chicken this week to use for this recipe and the last one, the chili chicken…(highly recommend that recipe as well)

Here is  the recipe I got in one of the comments, this one is  from a gourmet lady  from Iceland.

“Lemon chicken – a delicious recipe.
2-4 chicken breasts (depending on how many people you have for dinner)
Cut each into two pieces, on the thicker side, i.e. thinning each.

That leaves you with 4-8 pieces which you coat with flour or spelt, liberally seasoned with black pepper.
Fry the chicken breasts in a mixture of olive oil and vegetable oil and put in a baking dish to keep in oven for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees. Due to the thinness of the slices they don’t need long. DO NOT DISCARD THE OIL AND FLOUR! in your pan.

Press 1-2 lemons and add the lemon juice to the pan, along with some chicken stock, around a cup or so. Add more pepper to taste, and finally
250 ml. cream, full fat or other according to taste.

Pour the thickened sauce over chicken and boil some tagliatelle.
Serve piping hot with Parmesan and a good, green salad.”

The weekend was packed with dinner parties and sleepovers in the country.  We had a lovely drive around the countryside.  We went through Þingvellir, where Parliament was established in the year 930.
