Lemon Rice

This is my lovely mom's recipe for Lemon Rice. She still makes it for road trips and pairs it with my spice mix Spicy Chicken Marinade (easy baked chicken marinated in yogurt and spices that packs a of flavor). It's a dish that can be eaten lukewarm and still retains a lot of delicious flavor. This dish has a nutty crunchy texture due to the use of Urad Dhal  (split black lentils that are skinned to expose their creamy white interior) in the rice. You probably could skip using Urad Dhal, however the crunchy texture and taste of Urad Dhal elevates this easy dish to a whole new level of deliciousness!! It's a great way to white rice. I like to eat this pairing with my Potato and Egg Fry spice mix (Egg Optional) because it adds to the overall heartiness of the dish. It's meat and style!

Amazing Recipe

This chicken marinade is amazing! Marinate overnight is best and the chicken is crispy, moist, and so flavorful with just the right amount of heat! My whole family loves it - have only used chicken thighs, need to try with bone in, skin on chicken breast too!

Thank you Kim for this thoughtful and AWESOME review along with your gorgeous mouthwatering photos! I am SO delighted that you and your family love my chicken marinade seasoning kit. Good to know that the seasoning kit can used with both boneless vs. bone-in chicken thighs. Great tip! Thanks again for taking the time to write such a wonderful review ! I appreciate you !
