Now that summer is almost over and my kids are going to school, I am starting to plan meals that are both easier and faster to prepare. As much as I like barbeques and grilling outside, the weather will soon be giving way to the fresh days of fall, one of my favorite seasons. I am looking forward to warm, comforting foods, how about you?
Last week on a particularly beautiful day I decided to prepare a marinade. Don’t you love marinades? I think they are a great way to add flavor to any meat and they are ridiculously easy to prepare. I remember looking out my window and seeing our lemon and lime trees and that was the inspiration for this citrus chicken recipe I am sharing with you today.
I didn’t have a lot of time, so I pulled some chicken out of the fridge, a can of new potatoes, olive oil, and spices from the pantry and got to work. Here is the recipe, so easy and fast you are not going to believe it!
Citrus Chicken with New Potatoes
- 12 Chicken cutlets
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup Holland House White with Lemon Flavor Cooking Wine
- 1 t Thyme
- 1 (14 1/2 oz – 411 gr) can of whole new potatoes
Place the chicken in a glass bowl, combine olive oil, cooking wine and thyme and pour over the chicken. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Take chicken from fridge, place it in a baking dish, and bake for 35 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. Ten minutes before the chicken is cooked, open the can of new potatoes, drain the water, cut them in four pieces each and add them to the chicken dish. Spoon juices from the bottom of the dish on top of potatoes and put them back in the oven for 10 more minutes until potatoes are warm and chicken is ready.
Serve on top of rice or quinoa next to a salad.
I told you it was very easy to make. The chicken was delicious, the lemon cooking wine gave it just the right amount of citrus zest. This time I used the Holland House White with Lemon flavor cooking wine, but Holland House has a great variety of flavors, in fact, two new were just released: Sake and Champagne. Imagine what you can do with those flavors. I am already bouncing a few ideas around in my head.
