Quick & Easy Baked Lemon Chicken Recipe Reviewed

Lemon Chicken Recipe

Our son's favorite dinner is my baked lemon pepper chicken. I serve it over rice, which I make in my rice cooker while the lemon chicken is baking in the oven.

I normally make 6 servings, but the recipe can easily be doubled.

Six serving may sound like a lot, but each serving is 1/2 of a chicken breast. Baking the chicken in smaller pieces allows the flavor to bake fully through the piece of chicken and makes it very tender.  The recipe, as shown below, is enough for 3 or 4 adults.

When my oven went out last year and I had to wait months for a replacement, I started baking this recipe in my Calphalon Performance Cool Touch Countertop Toaster Oven.  Since it has a convection bake option, the lemon chicken baked up beautifully in the small oven without heating up my kitchen. Now, I bake it in my countertop oven every time I make it, unless we are having company and I need more chicken.


Delicious Baked Lemon Pepper Chicken Recipe


Because the rice takes 45 minutes to cook in my rice cooker, I start the rice before I put my chicken in the oven. I make 2 cups of rice for this dinner.

Ingredients 

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (Cut in half to make 6 pieces)

  1. Heat the oven to 425°F. (Convection 400°F)
  2. Lightly coat baking dish with butter
  3. Wash and pat dry chicken breast with paper towels – Cut in halves
  4. Melt butter in the microwave. Add Lemon Pepper seasoning & salt to melted butter. Stir until combined
  5. In a large bowl, roll each piece of chicken in the butter mixture and place it in the prepared baking dish. (brush any remaining butter on top of the chicken pieces once they have all been rolled in it)
  6. Place 2 or 3 lemon slices on each piece of chicken
