One was for The World's Best Chicken, which was good and had interesting flavors (from the most unlikely ingredients), but I wouldn't call it The World's Best. I think my oven baked chicken is The World's Best, but that's just my opinion.
But the Lemon Brownies! Oh, man! They are a wondrous wonder of lemony lusciousness (again with the alliteration: sorry, I can't help myself)!
They are sweet, but not too sweet, tart, but not too tart, and not crumbly like lemon bars can be. They have a brownie-like, not cakey texture. I couldn't wait until they cooled completely to try them, but I didn't mind dripping lemon glaze on my shirt. Charles, the kids and their friends agreed that they are great. I can see them nestled side by side with chocolate brownies on a platter. This will be my new potluck item, I think. They are amazing.
I rarely try two brand new recipes on the same day, but I was feeling energetic, and I felt like experimenting!
If you try either of these recipes, let me know what you think!
