Lemon-Garlic Chicken

What's For Dinner?

Today at Mops the whole meeting was about meal planning.  Our leader Jamie gave us meal planning tips, ideas with how to deal with picky eaters, we all shared recipes, and during our Mommy craft time we all made a zip lock bag full of ingredients for our lemon chicken meal!  Our craft coordinator Wendy came up with the meal and recipe!  I went to the grocery store while the kids were at gymnastics and got the chicken breasts needed for this meal.  My sister and John raved about how much they liked the chicken, and the kids ate every drop!

Here's the recipe!


No-stick cooking spray
1/2 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 cup lemon juice (optional)
2 tbsp canola oil
1 lb chicken breast


Preheat oven to 375.  spray shallow pan with cooking spray.  combine bread crumbs, garlic salt and lemon pepper in ziplock bag.  Combine lemon juice and oil in another ziplock bag.

Add chicken to bag with lemon juice mixture toss to coat.  Place each breast in bag with crumb mixture, shake to coat.  Place coated chicken in single layer in baking pan.  Sprinkle any remaining crumbs over chicken if desired.

Spray tops of chicken with cooking spray.  Bake 20-25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in centers.

My Opinion

1. I doubled the spices recipe in the one ziplock bag.  

2. It only took us 20 minutes to bake.  

3. And I can't imagine not using real lemon juice because it made the dish so tasty!!!  

I served with a side garden salad and veggies on the plate with the chicken!  It was truly a hit for everyone.  Even Micah had some of the chicken!
