Meyer Lemon Chicken
Recipe by: Sharon Matten
Meyer lemons are a hybrid between a lemon and a mandarin orange. They were discovered in 1908 by Frank Meyer whom they are named for. A rounder, yellow-orange lemon with a sweet, floral scent, Meyer lemons offer a more mellow alternative to their acrid relatives.
This Meyer Lemon Chicken recipe is a fairly-simple one-pan wonder, ideal for anyone on a gluten-free diet while still being very family friendly. If you can’t find Meyer lemons at your local market you can substitute regular ones, but it will alter the flavor.

Before you leave for work, gather your nonperishable ingredients on the counter next to the stove with a copy of the recipe and corral your refrigerated items in a bowl. Everything you need will be ready and waiting for you when you come through the door. You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing you have a great gluten-free meal planned that the whole family will enjoy.
