Creamy Lemon Chicken with Couscous

July 19, 2020 / by Junko

Moepero made creamy lemon chicken with couscous that was prepared with chicken broth.
This dish is creamy, yet the lemon makes it light and refreshing so it’s perfect for summer!
The chicken was marinated overnight in a magical Japanese condiment called “Shiokoji,” so the meat becomes soft and the umami increases.


1 chicken thigh (marinate the chicken with 1 tbsp shio-koji and leave in the fridge overnight)
100ml chicken soup stock
2-3 tbsp lemon juice
120ml milk
1/4 onion
1 garlic
8 mushroom
3 tbsp white wine
1-2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
black pepper
5 basil leaves
