Baked Lemon Chicken

Spring is in full bloom around here.  Nothing says Spring to me better than bright, sunny, yellow lemons.  Therefor, I was not surprised that I ended up with about three pounds of lemons from my last grocery shopping trip. Tonight I made the first of many recipes using these lemons.

Easy Baked Lemon Chicken

chicken breasts, 4
whole lemons, 3
lemon extract, 1 tbsp
butter, 1/4 cup
garlic powder, to taste
Mediterranean sea salt, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Slice one lemon and squeeze juice onto the chicken.
3. Place chicken into the oven
4.  Melt butter and lemon extract in pan.  Squeeze the remaining 2 lemons into the butter.
5.  Remove chicken from oven and drizzle butter sauce onto them.
6. Sprinkle chicken with sea salt and garlic powder.
7. Put back in oven and cook for another 35 - 45 minutes.

And, of course, what goes better with lemon chicken than

 Mmmm... enjoy!
