Springtime Dinner Lemon/Honey Chicken & Onions

Andy Anderson !


This is an excellent Springtime dinner that can be prepared and served in a single pan. I’m using a cast iron skillet; however, any good ovenproof skillet should work just fine.

So, you ready… let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Springtime Dinner Lemon/Honey Chicken & Onions


  • 2Gather your ingredients.
  • 3Whisk the tamari, honey, ginger lemon juice, and red pepper together in a small bowl.
  • 4Divide the marinade in half.
  • 5Add the chicken pieces to a Ziploc bag, and add 1/2 of the marinade.
  • 6Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  • 7Chef’s Note: This gives the marinade a chance to get acquainted with the chicken.
  • 8Toward the end of the 2-hour waiting period place the remainder of the marinade into a small saucepan.
  • 9Bring to a simmer, and allow the sauce to cook until reduced by half, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  • 10Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 400 (205c).
  • 11Add the empty skillet to the oven and allow to heat up.
  • 12Remove the skillet from the oven and then add the onions, salt & pepper, then place the chicken, carrots, and lemons on top of the veggies.
  • 13Brush the chicken and veggies with the reserved marinade.
  • 14Place into the preheated oven, and bake until the chicken is crispy, and the veggies are tender, about 40 to 45 minutes.
  • 16Bring to the table in the skillet (remember it’s hot), and allow your guests to dig in. Enjoy.
  • 17Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
