How to Make Baked Lemon Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350'F. Spray 9x13" baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine melted butter, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
  3. Pour breadcrumbs into a separate shallow dish.
  4. Dip chicken in butter mixture and coat with breadcrumbs. Place in the prepared 9x13: baking dish.
  5. Drizzle with any remaining butter mixture. (This gets thick, and I made a fresh 1/2 recipe of it to drizzle over the chicken, but that's just me. Haha!)
  6. Bake, uncovered at 350'F. for 25-35 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken, or until juices run clear.
