  1. Grate the zest from half a lemon. Squeeze the juice out of both lemons.
  2. Peel the onion and slice thinly. Sweat it in oil, then add crushed garlic. Pour half the lemon juice and soy sauce, and add the cream and grated lemon zest after a few minutes. Once the sauce boils, reduce the heat and incorporate the rest of the lemon juice. Continue cooking for a few more minutes.
  3. Season the cleaned chicken with pepper and salt. Bathe the chicken in the sauce taken off the heat, then lay it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven at 356 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes.
  4. Garnish with fresh cilantro, and serve with a salad and the starchy side you prefer. Enjoy!
