Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls Lemon Chicken

Post  justmecookin on Fri Jun 19, 2009 9:44 am

Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls Lemon Chicken

8 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup fresh lemon juice, about 8 lemons
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup oil
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons chicken stock
2 lemons, sliced paper thin

Preheat oven to 350. Combine chicken and lemon juice in a bowl just large enough to hold them comfortably. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning once.

Drain chicken thoroughly and pat dry. Fill a plastic bag with flour, paprika and black pepper and shake to mix. Put two pieces of chicken into the bag and shake coating completely.

Heat oil in frying pan until hot. Fry chicken pieces a few at a time, do not crowd pan, until brown and crisp. This will take about 6-8 minutes per batch.

Arrange chicken in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Sprinkle evenly with lemon zest and brown sugar. Mix chicken stock and lemon juice together and pour around chicken pieces. Put a slice of lemon on top of each piece of chicken. Bake chicken for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown. Makes 8 servings

Post  justmecookin on Sat Jun 20, 2009 8:33 am

Inn at New Berlin Roasted Duckling

1 cup blackberry preserves
2/3 cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp. cider vinegar
2/3 cup Chambord liqueur
1/2 cup chicken stock

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan on medium heat until it reaches a boil. Simmer for 5-10 minutes on low heat, stirring constantly to avoid scorching. Coat each duckling half with 2 tbsp. sauce.

Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until duckling is nice and crispy. Thicken the remaining sauce with equal portions of a flour and water mixture until it coats the back of a spoon. (Note: 1 tbsp. water for 1 cup sauce) Nap the remaining thickened sauce over cooked duckling and serve. Makes 4 servings
