Pick me up Chicken.

With all the fresh ingredients its perfect to make when you have a cold or sore throat.

1 lemon
1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger
1/2 tsp salt

2 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp soy sauce
4 chicken thighs with skin and bone
1 tbsp olive oil

Sliced green onions and lemons.

1. Finely grate the peel from the lemon and put in a bowl with the ginger and salt. Mix. Juice the lemon and put juice in a separate bowl with soy sauce and honey and 1 tbsp water.

2. Rub lemon peel mixture underneath the skin of the chicken. Keep skin on. In a large frying pan heat the oil on med. put the chicken on skin side down for 7 minutes. Turn chicken over, add soy sauce mix over chicken and cook covered for 17 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.

3. Put chicken on table, may top with green onions, lemon, and some of the pan drippings. I like to serve it with rice and squash/zucchini.

This was awsome and I'll definitely be cooking it again. Everyone loved it even the babes.

Recipe based on one from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine September 2010 Called Lemon Ginger Chicken Highs. Slightly modified by me.
