DIRECTIONS

  • Spray a deep baking dish, or roaster with non stick spray.
  • Combine 1 TBS of olive oil, the juice and zest of both lemons, plus the additional lemon juice, and the 4 cloves of garlic minced in a small bowl.
  • Place the chicken in the roasting pan.
  • Sprinkle liberally with the Lemon Pepper Salt.
  • Pour the lemon mixture over all- you can throw the lemon rinds into the baking dish too.
  • Bake at 400 for about 45 minutes to an hour, turning the chicken over halfway through baking.
  • I sometimes make this, and seal it in a ziplock bag in the freezer, then when you are ready, thaw, dump in the roaster and bake- just adding the lemon pepper salt.
  • My family likes this when I take the sauce from the chicken, combine it with a small amount of half and half and serve it over pasta.
