Total Time:  3 Hours 35 Minutes
  Makes 4 servings
For the Marinade:
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1-1/2 cups sliced onions
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley, with stems
Salt and pepper to taste

1 medium whole chicken, about 3 pounds, cut into 8 pieces, with the skin removed
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1-1/2 cups thinly sliced onions
1-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 cup lime sections, with peel and white pith removed, about 4 limes
1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk or heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional Garnishes:
Chopped parsley
Lime slices
In a small bowl, combine the marinade ingredients, adding salt and pepper to taste.

Put the chicken pieces into a bowl with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, turning the chicken pieces occasionally. Drain and discard the onions and parsley.

Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, and sauté for about 2 minutes, or until the onions begin to soften.

Add the chicken pieces, salt and pepper, to taste, and cook for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Add the lemon juice and lime sections, then turn up the heat to bring the liquid to a boil. Cover and lower the heat to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove the chicken pieces and keep warm. Add the buttermilk or cream over low heat and heat through.

Put the chicken pieces back into the sauce and turn to coat. Place 2 pieces of chicken on each plate. Garnish with the parsley and lime slices, if desired.

Great dish. Very easy to make and yummy. (Note: the directions do say to 'DRAIN' the marinade, so the other comment regarding what to do with the marinade was due to the fact the user didn't notice that part in the directions.) So, go ahead and try it. Great summer chicken recipe.
