Baked Lemon Chicken 30 minute recipe

Baked Lemon Chicken Recipe with A Healthy Life For Me.  We all like to spend time with friends and family and one of the most enjoyable ways to do that is over a delicious meal.  The dinner table is the perfect place where we can sit down take a deep breath enjoy the company of those we hold dearest to our heart and hear about how their day went.

To really be able to do this on a regular basis you need to have delicious recipes that are not fussy to pull together.

I am sharing my Baked Lemon Chicken Recipe today because GE asked me to be part of their Weeknight Kitchen campaign.  Where I will help promote the importance of the weeknight dinner by sharing one of my families favorite 30 minute recipes, in hopes that it will help make it easier for you to be able to find the time to sit down and enjoy a delicious homemade dinner with those you love.

I not only enjoy this recipe because it is ready in 30 minutes, but because it is healthy and packed full of deliciousness.  The recipe is short on ingredients and full of clean healthy ingredients that allow you to make a moist chicken in 30 minutes.  Great for a weeknight family dinner but fancy enough to serve to guests.  I like to serve on top of roasted Brussels sprouts, with a side of Quinoa or Rice.  The whole meal can easily be pulled together stress free in one half hour.  To find even more delicious weeknight recipes head over to the food network weeknight kitchen page.

If you are thinking of a kitchen update or remodel, you definitely want to check out some of GE’s new Appliances that are perfect for multitasking in the kitchen, they have a great Pinterest page that will inspire you.

Simple meals are often the best! Love this one.

Thanks Cathy, I hope you enjoy a bowl soon!

Followed directions exactly and got rubber chicken. Steaming chicken in juices does not end up with good results. And, there was absolutely no flavor. I used a big fresh lemon and zest, and not flavor. Sorry. At least I have my left-over wine.

Sorry to hear that JL. I have made this dish several times with good results.

I made this tonight. The chicken was nice and moist, but there was a bitter taste to it (mostly in the liquid). I was wondering if you might know why. I want to make it again, but obviously avoid the bitterness.

Not sure Jennifer, could be the wine. Did it have a bit of bitter flavor before you cooked with it?

I’ve made this multiple times for many different people and everyone has loved it! The chicken always turns out super moist, and the extra liquid is really yummy mixed in with rice. It also heats up really well if you have leftovers.

I have no idea why other reviewers are having trouble with this recipe – I find it really easy, and you can prep most of it ahead of time, so it’s great for dinner parties when you don’t want to be cooking all night. I usually serve it with a side of veggies and rice or quinoa seasoned with garlic and herbs. Yum!

So glad to hear that you have had success Claudia, and thank you for sharing! Keep enjoying.
