Everyone loves my lemon pepper chicken. I fix it for valentine dinner every year for the church. It is nice and tender and falls right off the bone.


  1. Preheat oven 200 degrees Use a 9x13 glass baking pan, pour the oil in and over the whole pan.
  2. Mix flour and lemon pepper seasoning in a mixing bowl Dip chicken in water then roll in flour mixture.
  3. Make sure the chicken is covered all over.
  4. Place chicken in pan.
  5. Pour lemon juice over the chicken, then cook on 200 for 6-8 hours.

I used boneless skinless chicken breasts in this, as that was all I had! I also sprinkled extra black pepper over the top. I baked this at 350F for 25 minutes instead of at 200F for 6 hours (I didn't have enough time for that!) and it turned out great! I made a sauce as suggested by the other reveiwer only I also used about 2 Tbsp. of milk as well as butter in mine. That was a great suggestion - the sauce was the best part!! The lemon pepper was a little too strong for my tastes so next time I think I will cut that out all together and just sprinkle black pepper over the top. Thanks!

I tried this recipe and really liked it. I too used boneless chicken breasts. Since I did not have lemon pepper, I grated fresh lemon into the flour and pepper mixture and it came out well. I also made a sauce out of the pan drippings by using a little wine, salt, and butter.

Chicken poached in lemon juice! Wonderful dish. We love lemon pepper so I used more. I plated the chicken then poured the reamining juice from the casserole into a small pan, heated it and whisked in 2 T chilled butter. Used that for the sauce and it was awesome. Thanks for posting this! Very easy recipe and delicious.
