Lemon Pepper Chicken Recipe
Use the store-bought mix or make this easy version, too.
Lemon pepper chicken is a super delicious combination of the citrus flavor of lemons, the kick from coarsely ground black peppercorns, and the umami-packed chicken.
You can use the packaged lemon pepper seasoning but for those who don't have it or want to make it from scratch, this recipe is for you. The trick to making this super tasty without making the chicken sour is using only the lemon zest in the marinade, leaving you with an intense lemon flavor. Just serve with lemon slices so those who would love a hit of lemon juice can squeeze as much or as little to their heart's delight.
This is a lemon pepper chicken recipe so don't forget to add lots of freshly ground black pepper for that spicy kick!
