I love chicken, I could eat it several nights a week. Baked chicken breast is one of my faves and this Baked Lemon Chicken I found at Alicia’s Recipes is no exception! it was so juicy and the flavor was divine, it’s definitely found a permanent home in my recipe book.
Baked Lemon Chicken
2 – 2 1/2 lbs. chicken, quartered (I used bone in breasts)
1 lg. clove garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. rosemary leaves
Dash of black pepper
1 tsp. lemon rind
1/3 c. lemon juice
1/2 c. water
Rinse chicken, pat dry. Place in shallow pan, skin side down. Combine garlic, salt, rosemary, pepper and lemon rind. Sprinkle over chicken. Pour lemon juice and water over all. Bake, uncovered in preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes. Turn quarters. Baste. Continue baking about 25 to 30 minutes or until tender.
Delicious and juicy! Normally I just butter my bone in chicken breasts and sprinkle with salt and pepper before baking, but this recipe was a wonderful change from the usual. :)
