authentic spanish food recipes - lemon garlic chicken

Mmmm ... I just love this recipe. It's so tasty, and easy-to-make.

Plus, it will go with just about anything.

Chicken's a relatively economical dish in most countries.

Being white meat means it's healthy, plus you can easily pull off all the skin before cooking, leaving the meat fat free.

The following recipe includes two products for which Spain is famous - garlic (anti-oxidant) and lemon (vitamin C).

Don't include any white pith in the lemon zest, as this will make the dish taste bitter.

And, you'll find the saffron doesn't just add a sunny, yellow color to the dish - it also bestows a wonderful aroma.

Qu aproveche!
