I was looking at all the beautiful pictures on Tastespotting the other day and I found this recipe. It looked like the perfect weeknight meal for us - chicken, easy and healthy. I marinated the chicken overnight. I pan seared the chicken for three minutes on each side and then baked it at 400 for 15 minutes. The chicken was very moist and the flavor was great. It reminded me a lot of the "Fire Chicken" that we grill. Tadd cleaned his plate and finished off my chicken for me. We really liked this and will be making it again.
Lemon Pepper Chicken
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
lemon wedges for garnish
In a bowl combine all ingredients except the chicken. Place chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet until they are a uniform thickness. This ensures that they will cook evenly. Place chicken in a glass dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken. Turn the chicken to coat. Marinate for 2 hours. After two hours, remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the remaining marinade. Cook the chicken in a skillet 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Serve with lemon wedges.
