Dom Deluise Recipe

In honor of Dom Deluise's passing today, I must acknowledge a favorite recipe from his cooking video.
My husband and I have prepared this recipe many times and it is great hot, and even better cold!

Dom Deluise Mama's Lemon Chicken:
6 pounds chicken, whole two whole birds, cut up
1 cup lemon juice fresh
1 x parsley leaves chopped
1 large onion coarsely chopped
2 cups bread crumbs seasoned
2 tablespoons parmesan, parmigiano-reggiano cheese, grated grated
1/2 cup olive oil


Place bread crumbs in large plastic bag, add 2 Tbls chopped parsley.

Dip chicken pieces in lemon juice.

Put chicken pieces (3 at a time) into bag with bread crumbs.

Close bag and turn to coat chicken pieces.

When coated remove from bag and place in glass baking dish which has been coated with a thin coating of the olive oil.

Sprinkle chopped parsley and chopped onion on top of the coated chicken.

Drizzle olive oil over the chicken pieces.

Bake uncovered in 350 degree oven for about one hour.

Remove from oven and drizzle more lemon juice on top of chicken before serving.
