How to Make Lemon Pepper Chicken

Lemon pepper chicken is a versatile recipe and various modifications can be done with this.

Since vegetables and spices vary from one recipe to another, they receive different titles, like lemon-pepper chicken sauté, lemon-pepper chicken pops, lemon-pepper garlic chicken, lemon-pepper roasted chicken, lemon-pepper chicken wings, microwaved lemon-pepper potato, lemon-pepper with rice and lastly, lemon-pepper with carrots and potatoes. It makes a good leftover.

For its preparation, Dutch oven lid for a grill is recommended. If it is not there, a gas or charcoal grill also works fine. Many like to add garlic as an essential item to it.

Ingredients:

  • Chicken breast halves: 4 (4 oz.)
  • Catalina Salad dressing: 1/4 a cup
  • Red-pepper powder: 1/8 tsp.
  • Dijon mustard: 1 tbsp.
  • Black pepper: ¼ tsp.
  • Worcestershire sauce: 1 tsp.

Instructions:

  1. Buy boneless and skinless chicken breast-halves and wash them thoroughly. If desired, clean off the fats on it. Pat them dry.
  2. Rub the mixture of black and red pepper all over the chicken breasts.
  3. Add the Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard and salad dressing and make a paste. Now brush this paste on the breast pieces nicely.
  4. Place the coated breasts onto a baking tray and bake them at a temp. of 375 degrees F for 25 minutes. Check that the breasts should be no more pink in color. Once done, remove them and keep aside.
  5. Before serving, heat up the leftover dressing-mixture and serve along side the cooked pieces.

Tips:

  • You can use a reduced calorie Catalina salad dressing for health and nutrition factors.
  • You can use the lemon-pepper seasoning available at the market.
  • Instead of the sauce and dressing, you can add bouillon cubes also.

  • If you prefer it sweet and sour, add 1 tbsp. of brown sugar.
