Lemon Chicken with Spring Onions is a luscious tangy recipe to get your mouth watering. Succulent oven steamed chicken breasts bursting with flavour alongside sweet roasted vegetables.
I wanted to try something different, Healthy and light. So I told the family what I was cooking and they seemed intrigued. I was probably onto a winner with this one, as I know they all like chicken. The issue I would run into was the ‘lemon’ part of the recipe. Lemon Chicken, I know my family definitely don’t like it. So I added some additional flavours that would compliment the lemon flavour. The meal was an absolute winner.
