Chicken with Sautéed Onions and Lemon

This easy to make delicious meal is a sure winner for any family meal.  Good quality food doesn’t need a whole lot of spices and technique to make it taste delicious.  This is a great example of that.


  • 8-12 pastured chicken thigh’s, boned but with skin.
  • 2 sweet onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ fresh flat leaf parsley chopped or 1 tsp. dried
  • Seasoning: salt and pepper to taste


Season chicken with salt and pepper.

In a large sauté pan, over medium heat, place 4-6 pieces of chicken at a time skin side down in a preheated pan with extra virgin olive oil or unrefined coconut oil.

*The trick is not to turn the chicken over until the pieces are well browned.

When both sides are browned and cooked through, remove chicken from pan and continue with remaining pieces.

Remove chicken from pan.  Pour off all but 2 tbsp.’s of the remaining oil.  Add onions.  Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sauté onions until almost golden brown.  Add the garlic and cook until onions are golden.  Be careful not to burn the garlic.

Add the lemon slices and sauté for one minute. Add the stock and stir.  Add the chicken back to the pan.  Add the parsley and stir.  Check or proper seasoning.

Place in a large platter & serve.  I like to serve it with steamed broccoli and a salad.
