Mom’s Yummy Chicken

Yes…that is the name of this recipe…from my moms recipe box…yummy chicken! So the question of course was..Is it yummy? I had to give it a try & it was! ! Simple ingredients which is always good. The original recipe called for chicken pieces & apple juice. I used bone-in chicken thighs & orange juice since I didn’t have any apple juice..the orange juice was leftover from the Glazed Orange Cake. I recommend you give this chicken a try.

Here is the recipe

Mom’s Yummy Chicken

1/4 cup flour

2 tsp salt *** seems like a lot of salt but it isn’t too salty!

1/4 tsp pepper

3-4 pounds chicken pieces ***I used 8 bone-in chicken thighs

4 green onions, chopped

2 Tbsp lemon juice *** I used fresh but my mom used the bottled lemon juice!

1 can of sliced mushrooms, drained

1 tsp sugar

1/3 cup orange juice *** original recipe calls for apple juice



  1. Mix the flour, salt & pepper together in a bowl big enough to coat the chicken pieces in
  2. Dip the chicken in the flour mixture , making sure all of the chicken is coated in the flour
  3. Heat some oil in a frying pan, and brown the chicken pieces on all sides
  4. Transfer the browned chicken to a baking dish
  5. Saute the green onions & sliced mushrooms. Add to the chicken
  6. Mix the sugar & orange juice together & pour over the chicken
  7. Bake at 325f until throughly cooked & brown  *** Baste often

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
