Chicken recipes

Lemon Pepper Chicken

Chicken breast recipes have a bad rep for being bland. But I can assure you that we may not stand for something boring — particularly with regards to food. If you throw fowl right into a pan with salt and pepper and bake it for all the time, of the path it’s going to be terrible. I recognize this sounds apparent, however, it’s what so many human beings looking to “devour wholesome” do. On the alternative hand, whilst you add layers of shiny and clean flavors (like lemon pepper!), consuming wholesome is a breeze.
