Lemon Kelp Chicken Thighs

This is a delicious chicken recipe, perfect for spring and summer!

 

It has just the right amount of lemon, and the kelp seasoning provides additional nutrition benefits as well as a massive flavour burst. This is one of our favourites and is versatile in terms of what you can serve it with, but also simple to make. I hope you like it too.

MAKE THIS RECIPE

5 bone-in chicken thigh cutlets or drumsticks

2T salted butter or animal fat

Juice from one lemon (or lime)

1T Kelp Seasoning

1/2t himalayan salt

 

  1. Heat butter in a large stainless steel or cast iron fry pan over high heat.

  2. Add chicken thighs, sear first side until golden brown (2-3 mins) and add salt and kelp seasoning on top.

  3. Turn onto other side and sear for 1-2 minutes before adding the lemon juice to the hot pan.

  4. The butter and lemon juice will start to blacken the chicken. Turn temp down to medium/low.

  5. Use the cooking juices to baste/cover the chicken while it finishes cooking on one side (about 5-7 minutes), then turn over and finish the other side for another 5 minutes

  6. You can then turn temp off and cover with lid to finish cooking for 10 minutes,
