Here is another wonderful recipe from Bj Gourmet.. She said that this recipe can be found on a couple of other web sites.. Sounds sooo good!!


RAO'S FAMOUS LEMON CHICKEN


Two (2-1/2 to 3 lbs each) broiling chickens, halved

Lemon Sauce (recipe follows)

1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley

Preheat broiler for at least 15 minutes.

Broil chicken halves, turning once, for about 30 minutes or until skin is golden brown and juices run clear when bird is pierced with a fork.

Remove chicken from broiler, leaving broiler on. Using a very sharp knife, cut each half into about 6 pieces (leg, thigh, wing, and 3 small breast pieces).

Place chicken on a baking sheet with raised sides. Pour Lemon Sauce over the chicken, and toss to coat well. If necessary, divide sauce in half and do this in two batches.

Return to broiler, and broil for 3 minutes. Turn each piece and broil for an additional minute. Remove from broiler, and evenly portion chicken onto 6 warm serving plates.

Pour sauce into a heavy saucepan, and stir in the parsley. Place over high heat and boil for 1 minute. Pour an equal amount of sauce over chicken on each plate, and serve with lots of crusty bread to absorb the sauce.
