Lemon Pepper & Garlic Chicken

Junior has been having such a good time learning to cook with me… And I’m getting better at letting him do it without micromanaging as much lol.. On this particular night, he picked the meal. I let him browse for ideas, & he chose Lemon Pepper Chicken, but like I always do, I had to change the recipe & make it mine.

You will need :

4 large chicken breasts, or 8 cutlets (Jr really enjoys cutting the breasts into cutlets themselves… like he’s unusually amused by it)

1 small yellow onion, sliced

5 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning

1 tsp creole seasoning

1/2 tsp parsley flakes

6 tbsp butter

This picture may be the only proof that I let him do most of the work himself.. but I promise he did… Anyways, this part is easy. Place the slice onions in a layer on the bottom of your baking dish, then place your chicken breast cutlets on top of the onions, & top with minced garlic.

Sprinkle seasonings (except for parsley) over the chicken, then top each piece with about 1/2 a tablespoon of butter, & drizzle lemon juice over all.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown & juices run clear, then top with parsley & enjoy! I thought this paired well with wild rice & brussels sprouts.
