I love it when I can make a meal that my family loves without all the additives that are in packaged foods or restaurant meals. So I try to experiment with different simple, FRESH flavors to bring interest and pizzazz to dinner. And that’s exactly what my Baked Lemon Chicken recipe does. Just a little lemon juice, zest, herbs, and seasoning can really make your chicken pop with only a few minutes of prep!
Also, this is a great recipe to practice your visual cooking skills. Unless you have NO idea of measurements, try using your hands and your eyes to put together the ingredients for this sauce. I promise—it will work out and turn out delicious. And developing these intuitive cooking skills will make you a MUCH more confident, quicker cook in the long run!
So try putting away those measuring cups and spoons, stock up on some humanely-raised, organic chicken, and pre-heat your oven. Your family is going to fall in love with YOUR new chicken recipe and will be asking for it again and again!Print
Kitchen Tips and Resources:
- I use my Lodge 15-inch carbon steel skillet to bake up this chicken. Any casserole dish will do, but I just love how these skillet cook in the oven.
- I love my Microplane zester/grater. It’s so easy to zest a lemon in seconds. Here’s a tip, though. Zest your citrus before you squeeze it for juice. It’s sooooo MUCH easier!
- A good quality whisk helps mix the cornstarch in quickly and easily!
