We have a little prolific lemon tree in the backyard that give so many lemons that it's poor branches are so weighed down by all the beautiful yellow globes of delightful flavor.
I was outside poking around after work today and seeing the lemons had a couple thoughts run through my head. I ought to pick some of the lemons to give to the neighbor and some more to take to share with co-workers. I also thought that I should try to find some recipes that call for lemons that I can make.
I thought about making lemon bars but I not as crazy for them as my sister is so I passed on that recipe but in my internet search for others I found a Chicken with Artichokes and Melted Lemons. It was the melted lemons that intrigued me.
The other thing that was the clincher was that the recipe said it took a mere 30 minutes to prepare from start to finish. I think it probably would have been very close to that had my chicken been defrosted before hand but seeing as I don't prepare ahead of time that wasn't the case.
What was also amazing was that I had all the ingredients, including artichokes and capers, in the house. . .or yard for the lemons.
Everyone thought that this was a great tasting dish and that I should make it again. I really enjoyed it. You should give it a try.
