From the Woman's Day submitted by reader Pamela Stratford. I made this while on holidays and we enjoyed it and most of the time is in the cooking in the oven otherwise very little work needed.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to moderate 180°C.
  2. Line your baking dish with baking paper.
  3. Combine flour, paprika, salt and pepper in a clean plastic bag and add the chicken and toss to coat (I just used a shallow bowl and dipped the chicken in the mix).
  4. Arrange the chicken in a single layer in the baking dish and brush the chicken with butter and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. SAUCE - meanwhile, in a small jug, combine all ingredients and season to taste.
  6. Pour sauce over chicken and return to oven for a further 20 to 30 minutes or until chicken is golden and cooked through.
  7. Serve with a salad of choice and prawn crackers, I served with mashed potatoe and steamed vegetables.

5 stars for flavor and texture of the chicken. I needed more of the coating than the recipe made to cover all of the chicken but that wasn't really a big deal as it took about a minute to mix up more. I had extra of the oil and lemon glaze and just tossed it into the Jasmine rice that was on the go along with a touch of garlic. What a great combo they made! a green salad was all that was needed for a marvelous dinner. Thanks for this one Pay. :D

Super lemon chicken. I scaled back to 2 breasts and added the zest of an entire lemon for the 2 pieces. We love the flavor of lemon. The chicken came out super moist. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag game. :)

We really enjoyed this lemon chicken. I normally do not bake boneless chicken breasts because they tend to dry out; however, this dish was moist and delicious. I doubled the lemon juice, but otherwise made as directed. DH really liked the flavor and gave it a thumbs up. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, September, 2012.
