Method

1. Gently fry the chicken in the oil until golden brown. Remove it from the pan and put it on a plate.

2. Put the mushrooms and onion in the pan, stir and add the stock. Add a pinch of dill and simmer over a low heat.

3. Grate the lemon skin into the pan, then add the parsley, lemon juice and black pepper. Cook until the sauce has reduced by half, then put the chicken back in the pan. Simmer for another 15 to 20 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.

4. Serve with boiled rice and steamed green vegetables, such as cabbage or green beans.

Food safety tips

When cooking:

  • always wash your hands, work surfaces, utensils and chopping boards before you start preparing food and after handling raw meat, including poultry
  • keep raw meat away from ready-to-eat foods such as salad, fruit and bread
  • make sure the chicken is cooked until it's steaming hot all the way through, there's no pink meat left and any juices run clear
