The most ordered dish at Rao’s (even more than the meatballs) is the pollo al limone (lemon chicken). Here I will show you how to cook this delicious meal, using the original recipe.
Ingredients required: (for two chickens)
2- 2.5-3 pound broiler chickens, halved
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 cups fresh lemon juice (available in plastic bottles, make sure it is not from concentrate)
1 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Salt and Pepper
I only used this recipe for one chicken, so half ingredients are shown below
9. Pour 1/2 of sauce over chicken, place back into broiler for a few minutes
10. Heat remaining sauce in saucepan. Stir in parsley
11. Remove chicken from broiler, remove from pan using fork onto a large plate.
12. Pour heated sauce over chicken.
