Baked Lemon Chicken

A terrific recipe for the whole family!

This is a lovely, quick and easy recipe to make for family dinner or for company.  It's one of those dishes that you can add some of your favorite spices and put your own twist on it too.  

My granddaughter, Andrea, found this recipe, so I want to thank her for sharing it with the family.  We really love it!  The chicken turns out moist and tender, and the lemon flavor with the garlic was great!  


3 Tbsp. butter, melted                                  
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts(I pound them to about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.)

Preheat oven to 350'F.  Spray 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray.

In a shallow dish, combine melted butter, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt and pepper.

Pour breadcrumbs into a separate shallow dish.

Dip chicken in butter mixture and coat with breadcrumbs.  Place in the prepared 9x13: baking dish.

Drizzle with any remaining butter mixture.  (This gets thick, and I made a fresh 1/2 recipe of it to drizzle over the chicken, but that's just me. Haha!)

Bake, uncovered at 350'F. for 25-35 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken, or until juices run clear.
