First, let's talk about the benefits of dried lemon zest. It's a great source of Vitamin C and antioxidants, which can help boost your immune system and fight inflammation. Plus, it adds a zingy flavour to your dishes without adding any calories or sodium.
One way to use dried lemon zest is by adding it to your favourite baked goods. For example, you can add a teaspoon or two to your muffin or cake batter to give it a subtle lemon flavour. Or, you can sprinkle some on top of your oatmeal or yogurt to add a refreshing twist to your breakfast.
Another great way to use dried lemon zest is by incorporating it into your savoury dishes. For example, you can use it to make a bright and flavourful lemon vinaigrette for your salad. Simply mix together some olive oil, vinegar, honey, mustard, and a teaspoon of dried lemon zest. Or, you can use it to make a delicious lemon chicken dish. Here's the recipe:
Lemon Chicken Recipe:
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
Combine 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a shallow dish.
Dredge 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the flour mixture.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Transfer the chicken to a baking dish and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon dried lemon zest.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
