There’s no way around it, when you are dieting or following a low carb lifestyle, you will get tired of the same old, go-to, chicken or fish recipes. It’s inevitable. You can avoid this by keeping a stockpile of flavorful sauces to change up your routine. This lemon sauce is one I’ve used forever! It found it in the November 2014 edition of Cooking Light Magazine, and it’s a perfect solution to chicken burn out! This sauce is so versatile that you can spoon it over any style chicken or fish, use it on veggie kebabs, drizzle it over a pile of zoodles, sauteed or steamed asparagus, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, or even dip luscious steamed artichoke leaves in it!
Amazing Lemon Sauce
- 2 Cups Unsalted Chicken Stock
- 3 Large Eggs
- 2 TBLS Grated Lemon Zest
- 2 + 1/2 TBLS Fresh Lemon Juice
- 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
- 1 TBLS Olive Oil
Heat the chicken stock over medium-high heat in a heavy, medium saucepan to 180° or until tiny bubbles form around the edge. Do not boil. Once you reach the tiny bubble stage, turn the heat down as low as you can.
Combine the eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt in the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the wire whip attachment. Beat on medium until the eggs are frothy and lighter in color. If you don’t have a stand mixer, you can use a hand blender or whisk by hand in a medium bowl or use your Vitamix or blender.
Slowly add about a cup of the hot chicken stock into the egg mixture 1/4 cup at a time, while stirring on low speed, or lightly by hand, constantly with a whisk.
Once you’ve mixed the cup of stock in, add the egg, lemon, and stock mixture back to the pot, stirring to combine. Warm the sauce gently, until it thickens enough to a spoon. Turn off the heat.
Whisk in the olive oil to finish and serve warm over your favorite meat, fish or vegetables. #ThisGirlLovesToEat
