Lemon Reggiano Chicken

Hello friends. Welcome to The Family Recipe Place.

Today I am sharing a personal favorite of mine. My very own Lemon Reggiano Chicken.

Believe me, when I tell you, this dish is going to be a favorite for you and your guests.

It is simply delicious and you get refreshing Lemon and Reggiano cheese flavor in every bite.

It is made with fresh simple ingredients and is not hard to make.

If you want to try this recipe for yourself, then please keep reading.

It's So Easy To Make

Just a few simple ingredients.

You can keep the chicken as it is, or make them into bite-size pieces. If I am preparing this for myself and family, I will cut the chicken into thirds. If you are serving a group of people, cutting the chicken into pieces will give you more and everyone can have some.

When I am preparing this recipe, it always makes my mouth water. Smelling that fresh lemon and citrus is so refreshing to your pallet.

Before all the chicken is cooked, I always have to sample a piece because I just can't resist.

One Pan Is All You Need

The great thing about making this recipe is that you don't need a lot of tools.

Just one pan, one ziplock bag and a bowl for your milk and that is it.

Being that it is easy to prepare and you don't need much, it makes clean up a breeze.

That is always good because you can go right to eating and enjoying this delicious Lemon Chicken.

Preparing The Chicken For Frying

Getting that coating on the Chicken is what will give it that wonderful crunchy texture when you bite into it.

Prepping the Chicken for frying is easy.

Dipping the Chicken into the Milk first will help the bread crumb to stick nicely to the Chicken.

The Perfect Coating

Dipping your Chicken in the milk will act as glue for your breadcrumbs.

This will give you the perfect coating on your Chicken and that is what you want.

A good coating gives a nice crunchy texture on the outside after it's cooked.

Lemons Make The Dish

Lemons are so refreshing and the citrus adds a great flavor.

The lemon sauce for this recipe adds the perfect touch.
