Chicken with Lemon Butter

Another Success from my
Carmine's Family-Style Cookbook: More Than 100 Classic Italian Dishes to Make at Home
(are you sick of it yet?)

The lemon chicken was so yummy, I made the mistake of getting Meyer lemons at the store, I'm sure that made a difference in the final product but I still liked it a lot, I couldn't believe how well the lemon butter came together

I made it with a zucchini risotto, the original recipe was supposed to be made with squash blossoms and zucchini, but squash blossoms aren't exactly in season

I got the recipe from this cookbook
Risotto: With Vegetables, Seafood, Meat, and More

The key to good risotto, is taking your time!

I got that this summer, at the Ferrari Carano Vinyard on a wine tour while I was pregnant, since I couldn't drink any wine, I bought a cookbook

That winery is amazing, its the same Ferrari people as the car
The garden is one of the most amazing places I've ever seen, I had pictures, but they were lost when I lost my Kodak Camera before Annabella was born

Enough about that
Here is diner

A close up of the rissoto, you can see the zucchini
