Spicy Lemon Chicken Recipe




Spicy Lemon Chicken Recipe

I took a favorite recipe and modified it to work in a pressure cooker. We enjoy this tender lemony chicken with rice or buttered noodles.
Ingredients :
1 medium onion, chopped
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon each garlic powder, chili powder and paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each )
4-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
4-1/2 teaspoons cold water
Hot cooked noodles
Chopped fresh parsley, optional

In a greased 6-qt. electric pressure cooker, combine onion, water, lemon juice, oil and seasonings. Add chicken; turn to coat. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 10 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes; quick-release any remaining pressure. A thermometer inserted in chicken should read at least 165°. Remove chicken and keep warm.
In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; gradually stir into cooking juices. Select saute setting and adjust for low heat. Simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Serve with chicken over noodles. Sprinkle with parsley if desired.
