LEMON FLAVOURED CHICKEN

My parents have several old lemon trees in the garden. These old lemon trees are highly productive and it would be a pity to waste these lemons. We cook lemon buttered prawns with them, my Mum also makes lemon liqueur. From time to time, I cook lemon curd and I use to rack my brains to imagine new lemon-based recipes. Lemon flavored chicken is one of these. Lemon flavoured chicken is absolutely delightful whether cold with a mixed salad or hot with simple boiled potatoes. Just remember you have to let chicken fillets to marinate overnight.
