Baked Lemon Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by kansbaker

This is a recipe from the new Betty Crocker "Cooking For Today". I replaced the sugar with Splenda and corn syrup with honey. I also added some Aleppo pepper flakes to sauce to kick it up. It is so good. I am going to try the sauce with a stir fry next.

This is a wonderful dish that is easy to prepare. It makes a very moist and tender chicken and the sauce is outstanding. A big hit in this household, for sure. Thanks so much for sharing it, Kansbaker.
