Lemon Baked Chicken

Tidbits:

One day, my mom told me that I had to cook dinner. She insisted on an old recipe of lemon baked chicken from this cookbook alumni of her high school wrote. I jazzed it up – and now this is one of my favorite easy recipes!

Ingredients:

2 lbs. of chicken, bone in, skin on – thighs, breasts, whatever you like.

Lemon juice

Soy Sauce

Cajun/Creole Seasoning (whichever you prefer)

Garlic powder

Salt

Pepper

Butter

Directions:

1. Heavily season the chicken with the dry ingredients.

2. Squeeze lemon juice on the chicken. You don’t really need to marinade it, just make sure there is a nice little pool of lemon juice at the bottom of a 9×13 pan.

3. Place a small pat of butter on each piece of chicken

4. Pour a capful of soy sauce on each piece of chicken.

5. Place the pan of chicken into a 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes. Make sure it gets nice and brown.

6. Enjoy! I like to eat it with rice, and place some of the sauce on the bottom of the pan on the rice 🙂
