Garlicky Lemon-Pepper Chicken

22 Jan

Today’s recipe comes from TheHungryMouse.com.

          This Lemon Chicken is apparently a signature dish of some chap called The Angry Chef (and not the restaurant in LA that I found while trying to track down this fuming fellow to give some credit). Whoever he or she is, I would hire them as my personal chef based on this dish alone. This recipe does NOT mess around – it loves garlic, lemon, and seasonings of all kinds. You may even think it’s being excessive, since it forgoes measurements of any kind for the spices and herbs and instead just has you blanket the chicken with them. But trust it. It won’t betray you, baby.

Cheddar Biscuits

Cheddar Biscuits

Today’s recipe comes from Folkmann.ca.

Everyone I know shares the same opinion of Red Lobster: As great as the seafood is, it’s the free Cheddar Bay Biscuits that help get them into the restaurant in the first place. I’ve taken home a dozen of those babies before, because they’re hands-down the best free restaurant food you will ever encounter. This recipe comes pretty damn close to replicating those delicious, savory Cheddar Bay Biscuits – and best of all, you can probably cook them up in the same amount of time that it takes the waiter (or waitress) to bring them to your table!

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 1 clove of garlic, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
