Looking for something suitable for preparation in my toaster oven, this recipe caught my eye, and I was not disappointed! Due to space constraints, I substituted the cast iron with a Le Creuset baking dish. And as you'll see from my picture, I also went sweet with my potato. Neither had any bearing on this dish's deliciousness. A Saturday afternoon treat ... And definitely a candidate for regular repeat. Thank you!

I have made this many times over the last several years. I make it in the toaster oven using a pyrex dish and it comes out just great. Thanks for the recipe!

I just got my very first cast iron skillet and was super excited to try it. I chose this recipe because of its simplicity. Both (the skillet and the recipe) didn't let me down. I was very happy with the result. I took an advice of a previous reviewer and cut the time to 30 min (15 minutes on each side) and it was perfect for a very large breast. Next time I might try using seasoning salt instead of regular for a little extra kick. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

This was lemony tasty! I roasted 3 chicken breasts and used a mixture of olive oil and butter as well as lemon pepper (the more lemony the better). The chicken was a little dry so I may cut down on the cooking time on the next occasion.

This is great, easy, easy! I just added a bit more lemon cause I love that taste if there's nothing else. 20 minutes and we were well satisfied. Thanks so much!

Mmmm the BF and I just enjoyed this simple yet fabulous recipe post-workout! I'm wondering how a 100-calorie cooked chicken breast turns into 243 calories total with only lemon juice, melted butter and pepper, but I don't care! Thanks, Bill, we both love it!

Had planned on a different chicken recipe and realized last minute that a key ingredient I needed had gone bad. I was running out of time and was already planning on making Brother William's Pickle Dilly Green Beans so I searched his other recipes and found this one. It was easy to prep with always on hand ingredients and the results were very satisfying. When I brushed the chicken with the butter the pepper seemed to clump up in spots which gave some bites an extra peppery taste. I think next time I will try brushing the chicken with the butter first and then sprinkling with the pepper. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes!
