MARINATED OVEN FRIED CHICKEN WITH LEMON SLICES & MINCED GARLIC

Note:  Later, I received a comment that canola oil is not a good choice.  The web results are inconclusive.  The Mayo Clinic says that health concerns about canola oil are unfounded.  But in the future, I will post recipes with olive oil (mostly) or heart-healthy margarine only.

–4 chicken tenderloins or breast strips

–breadcrumbs (boxed, plain)

–lemon juice (bottled)

–lemon (fresh)

–minced garlic (in a jar)

–canola oil (heart-healthy; does not disguise flavors)

–salt and pepper

1 – Place the chicken in a plastic bag.  Add lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic.  Season with salt and pepper.  Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

2 – Add several drops of canola oil to the chicken in the plastic bag.  Add breadcrumbs, and shake vigorously.

3 – Place the chicken in a covered baking dish with a very little water.  With a sharp knife, slice a lemon.  Place the slices atop the chicken.  Microwave on high for 5 and one-half minutes.

4 – Serve the chicken hot, with the lemon slices as garnish.

      1. You are right. This ‘new’ discovery has been relayed to me from a top nutritionist. I want you to find out for yourself. I do not like to be adamant about anything since there is so much written on various topics and you need to be careful what you take in and adopt as true.
