How To Make lemon-pepper baste and bake chicken

  • 1
    Preheat your oven to 400 deg. Fahrenheit. Mix all ingredients but chicken in a small-sized bowl. In a baking dish or pan, put the chicken in a skin-side-up position. Use a 9 x 13 dish. In a single layer, apply the mixture you have made earlier to each chicken piece. Bake the chicken for about 35 to 40 minutes. Baste the chicken every 8 to 10 minutes. Chicken is done when the skin turns brown and the juices are clear when you try to slice the thickest portion of the chicken. Remove from the oven. Cover the chicken pieces with foil for approximately 15 minutes to make it soft and keep it warm until you serve it.
