skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
salt and ground black pepper to taste
This is an easy recipe that tastes delicious! It has a light lemon flavor and is very moist. Goes well with rice and a salad. The family loved it! :)
We found this came out too lemony (strange since I love lemon flavour) and much too garlicky. We also weren't keen on the texture created by the pile of breadcrumb mixture on top of the chicken.
A lovely quick and easy recipe with room for small changes anyone can add their own twist.
Instead of seasoning the chicken with the dry ingredients on the top I mixed them into the liquid. I had fairly thick chicken breasts so I cut them in half to make four thinner strips. I then dunked the chicken in the liquid spice mixture making sure to cover all of the chicken. I didn't have fresh lemons so I used 1/4 cup lemon juice. I think next time I would use a little more lemon juice and more of all the spices. I also didn't use bread crumbs and I'm glad I didn't because there was so much liquid they would have gotten soggy.
LOVED it!! I tweaked it a a bit , using much less oil than Called for in the spirit of being healthy. I put the ingredients in the bowl and whisked together and then poured it on the breasts. I added 1 tsp of salt and pepper each and then sprinkled abit more once it was in the dish. even my picky daughter who almost hates chicken liked it !! Yay.!!! Lol. Oh, and I a added a quarter cup of lime juice instead of lemon juice.
I just tried this for my husband and I. I used 1/2 cup of lemon juice and added lemon pepper as well and it was very bland lemon wise. Next time I will add at least a cup maybe a cup and a half of lemon juice. I omitted the bread crumbs as suggested in other reviews as there wasn't anything else to keep them from getting soggy. Also I mixed all of the ingredients together and after dipping the chicken in the mix I poured it on top of the chicken which helped to boil it and keep it from drying out.
My husband and I didn't care for this dish - lemony tasting but still bland.
I used thin sliced chicken and it came out more moist and flavorful then the chicken breast!
