-Bill Watterson

The refrigerator light goes on...

This recipe tastes like Spain to me. There's a bit of Italy or France, too, with versions of lemon chicken coming from almost every country around the Mediterranean. The best part is that it is super simple to make and the gravy is delicious sopped up with a bit of bread or roll.
