Continuing with the grilling phase (now in the rain!). This is a quick dish, which is really about the slow cooked onions with the added zing of preserved lemons. These lemons are easily obtainable in France and are used in many Moroccan dishes, but you can also make them yourself. The lemons are preserved in salt so they have a tart salty taste to them.
For this recipe for 4, you need :
Free range chicken (whole or pieces)
4 small preserved lemons
Prepare the chicken - be it a whole one to roast or as I did, chicken breasts grilled and split in two, filled with a tablespoon of the cooked down onions and lemon mix (like a chutney, really).
After slicing the onions finely, cook them on a low heat with a little olive oil in a frying pan. Cook for about 15 -20 minutes. Remove the pips from the lemons are finely sliced them also. Put the lemon slices in with the onions about halfway through the cooking.
That sounds lovely, have a great weekend.ReplyDelete

Hello Ron and Sophie,Delete
Thank you for your wishes, I have had a very happy birthday weekend!
Have a good Sunday!
Ivan (and Aston wooooof)
Ivan, this 'dish' is 'right up our alley'....chicken is our favourite meat. Are slow cooked onions the same as carmellized onions? And the mix with the lemons is interesting. Thanks for this and I hope you have a wonderful birthday! Who's going to cook for you?!ReplyDelete
Pleased you like this, not much to it but really tasty! Thank you for your wishes - I cooked for us (I really like cooking that much!!!)
Ivan, Happy Birthday to youuuu and happy springtime to youuuu!ReplyDelete
Thank you, that's so sweet of you. Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
That dish looks delicious. I don't think I've tried preserved lemons, I'll have to look out for them. And I see from the comments above that it's was your birthday! Happy belated birthday to you, I hope it was a wonderful day. xReplyDelete
Happy you like this, I am not sure how easy preserved lemons are to get in the UK but they are really easy to make (lots of recipes on the internet and I will make some soon), they just take time to mature/marinate. Wonderful if you like the acidulous/bitterness taste of lemon. Thank you for your wishes, not too late as it is a birthday weekend for me!!!
This sounds good, too bad about the rain though.ReplyDelete
Thank you, we are used to the rain, being in Normandy!!
