In a bowl or resealable plastic bag, combine chicken pieces and lemon juice. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator overnight, turning occasionally.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Drain chicken thoroughly and pat dry. Fill a plastic bag with flour, salt, paprika, and pepper; shake well to mix. Put two (2) pieces of chicken into the bag at a time and shake, coating completely.
Heat vegetable or corn oil in large frying pan or cast-iron frying pan until hot and fry chicken pieces, a few at a time, until well browned and crisp. NOTE: This will take about 10 minutes per batch.
Arrange browned chicken in a single layer in a large shallow baking pan. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar. Pour chicken stock around chicken pieces. Set a thin lemon slice on top of each piece of chicken. Bake chicken, uncovered, approximately 40 to 50 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. (juices will run clear when cut with the tip of a knife).
Remove from oven and transfer to a serving platter. May be served warm or cold.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
* I have also substitute boneless chicken breasts in this recipe. Adjust cooking time to approximately 20 minutes.
NOTE: The U.S. Department of Agriculture, as well as food agencies in the United Kingdom and elsewhere, advises against washing poultry. Rinsing chicken will not remove or kill much bacteria, and the splashing of water around the sink can spread the bacteria found in raw chicken. Cooking poultry to 165 degrees Fahrenheit effectively destroys the most common culprits behind food-borne illness.
