Ingredients
  1. 600g chicken thigh fillets, skin off and boneless
  2. ½ cup flour seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper
  3. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  4. 1 onion, finely chopped
  5. 1 stalk celery, finely sliced
  6. 1 leek, finely chopped
  7. ¼ cup dry white wine
  8. 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks
  9. juice of 1 lemon
  10. 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  11. 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  12. 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  13. 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
Instructions
  1. Roughly chop the chicken, place in a plastic bag with the seasoned flour, shake until the chicken is well coated.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and gently cook the onion, celery and leek for 12-15 minutes until tender.
  3. Add the chicken to the pan, increase the heat to medium and cook, turning at times, until well coloured and cooked through.
  4. Pour in the wine and allow to bubble and reduce.
  5. Whisk the eggs and egg yolks with the lemon juice and garlic, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Remove the chicken from the heat, pour over the egg mixture and stir until the egg coats the chicken and thickens. You may need to return the pan to a very low heat but make sure you keep stirring as otherwise the eggs can scramble.
  7. Serve lemon chicken topped with spring onions and sprinkled with combined parsley and lemon.
  8. Delicious served with steamed rice or pasta.
