Rao’s Famous Lemon Chicken


Two 2 1/2 – 3 lb. chickens halved

Preheat broiler 15 minutes before starting to cook. Broil chicken halves, turning once, for about 30 minutes or until skin is golden brown and juices run clear when pricked with a fork.Remove chicken from broiler, leaving broiler on.

Use a very sharp knife and cut each half into 6 pieces. (leg, thigh, wing and 3 breast pieces)Place chicken on a baking sheet with sides and pour the lemon sauce over it. Toss to coat well.

Return to broiler and broil for 3 minutes. Turn each piece and broil for another minute.Remove from broiler. Pour sauce into a saucepan. Add parsley to the sauce. Place over high heat and boil for 1 minute. Pour over the chicken and serve with lots of crusty bread to soak up the sauce.

2 C. fresh lemon juice
1 C. olive oil
1 T. red wine vinegar
1 1/2 t. minced garlic
1/2 t. dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
