Lemon Pepper Chicken

In our co-op basket this week, we got a dozen lemons.  I don’t ordinarily use lemons to cook other than the occasional squirt of lemon juice so I wasn’t quite sure what to do with so many lemons.  I also had a bunch of chicken that I got on sale at Target.  Seemed like a perfect idea to use them both for dinner today!  Mr. Real Food was kind enough to cook dinner tonight so I could run.  Wasn’t that sweet of him? And it turned out delicious!

Lemon Pepper Chicken


4 all-natural chicken breasts

3 lemons

Black pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly brush chicken breasts with olive oil in a baking dish.  Cut one of the lemons in half and squeeze the juice on each of the chicken breasts.  Sprinkle with black pepper.  Slice the other 2 lemons and place 2 slices on each piece of chicken.  Bake 30-35 minutes or until chicken is done.

We served our chicken with a side of black lentils and broccoli.  A delicious, low-calorie meal ready in under 45 minutes!
