Yummy Dinner

Keith and I had a super yummy dinner last night. It only has 5 ingredients and is super easy to make.

Here is the recipe below:

Broiled Lemon-Garlic Chickenimage


  • 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 to 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 half chickens (3 to 3 1/4 pounds total)


Position an oven rack about 8 to 10 inches from the broiler and preheat. Grate the lemon zest and combine in a small bowl with the butter, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste. Mash with a fork to make a smooth paste.

With your fingers, gently loosen the skin on the chicken breasts, legs and thighs. Spread the flavored butter under the skin as evenly as possible. Halve the lemons and squeeze 2 halves over the chicken; season with salt and pepper.

Place the chicken skin-side up on a broiler pan (or a rack on a baking sheet). Position the halves about 2 inches apart with the thick parts of the legs facing the center. Arrange the remaining 2 lemon halves cut-side down next to the chicken.

Broil the chicken until the skin is light brown and crisp, about 8 minutes. If the chicken browns too quickly, lower the oven rack. Flip the chicken and the lemons and continue to broil until almost cooked through (a thermometer inserted into the thickest part will register 160 degrees), about 15 minutes. Remove the lemons, if browned; turn the chicken again and broil until the skin is brown and crisp and the thermometer registers 165 degrees, about 2 more minutes. Serve the chicken with the broiled lemons for squeezing on top.

I am sorry for the lack of postings lately. I feel like we have been running at 1000 mpgs, so it has been hard to take a moment to give an update. Things going on this month are:

I (Kaylee) Started Full-time at PureFUN! ( I will be working to get new customers and also on marketing plans.


Keith starts his new classes at Luther Rice Seminary next week. He is taking 3 classes this semester. Uping his load just a bit. But i know he will still do great with it. He got all A’s last semester so YEA KEITH!


We are both still loving our ministry’s with Journey Church ( Keith is loving the Youth and has some great plans for this upcoming semester. It is awesome to see how God is using him and giving him the knowledge he needs. He is doing great and i am so proud of him. The band is going well with me too!


HOW COULD I FORGET…. Keith and I won the Christmas door decorating contest in the Lofts. We won a $25.00 Giftcard to Long Horns. So we were so excited about that. They featured pictures of our door in the monthly loft newsletter!

Ok wel. Until next time. Tungi
