Silver Palate Lemon Chicken

7:30:00

This is the final (for now) recipe I am sharing from the Silver Palate Cookbook. It’s an old book that first came out in the 70’s and I personally believe it’s a classic everyone should have. Plan out your menu, go to the grocery store, and call over some friends. This chicken deserves it.

STEP 1
Combine the Chicken (8 piece) and Lemon (1 cup) in a bowl just large enough to hold them comfortably.
STEP 2
Cover and marinade in the refrigerator overnight or early the morning of cooking, turning every few hours.
STEP 3
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
STEP 4
Rinse and dry the chicken pieces. Sprinkle lightly with Salt and Pepper (to taste) and set aside.
STEP 5
In a brown bag add the Paprika (1 teaspoon), All-Purpose Flour (1 cup), Salt and Pepper (to taste). Shake to combine. Add the chicken pieces, 2-3 at a time, and shake to evenly coat in flour. Shake off excess flour and transfer to a plate.
STEP 6
Add enough Canola Oil (to taste) to coat the bottom of a large skillet by 1". Heat over medium-high heat. Pan-fry the chicken, 2-3 pieces at a time, until well browned and crisped.
STEP 7
Arrange the browned chicken pieces in a single layer in a large shallow baking dish.
STEP 8
Combine the Brown Sugar (1 tablespoon), Lemon (1 tablespoon), Salt and Pepper (to taste). Evenly sprinkle the mix over the chicken pieces.
STEP 9
Mix the Lemon Extract (1 teaspoon) and Chicken Stock (1/4 cup) and pour around the chicken pieces. If using White Wine (1 splash), add a splash or two. Set a thinly sliced Lemon (1) on top of each piece of chicken.
STEP 10
Bake until fully cooked, about 50 minutes.
STEP 11
Serve and enjoy!
