Baked Lemon Chicken

Author: Wanda via Kelly the Kitchen Kop



  • Place bone-in chicken pieces in a baggie or bowl with the juice from lemons and 1 Tablespoon olive oil, depending on how many pieces of chicken.  Just use enough juice to coat the chicken well, which will depend on how many you're serving.
  • Mix the following in your food processor: bread crumbs, sea salt, lemon pepper, basil and oregano.  Then toss the chicken pieces, one at a time, into the breadcrumb mixture.  Place coated chicken pieces in a buttered baking dish.  (Note:  Before the baking step, Wanda throws it on the grill just to brown it a little, but I was lazy so I skipped this step and put it right into the oven.)  Bake at 375° for 40 minutes.
  • We served it with roasted beets drizzled with balsamic vinegar (which our kids wouldn't touch, of course), along with some germinated rice and herbs made with homemade nourishing chicken broth.
