Baked Lemon Pepper Chicken

- Submitted by Dahlia on 16th Dec 2008

(American Style Lemon Pepper Chicken)

Baked Lemon Pepper Chicken


  • Chicken Breast - 2 (You can use drumsticks too)
  • Freshly ground pepper - 1 tbsp (or as per taste)
  • Lemon - 2
  • Salt - as needed
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp


  1. Gently scrap the zest of both the lemon and put it in a bowl.
  2. Add the ginger garlic paste, salt, turmeric powder, fresh ground pepper powder,  finely chopped cilantro, juice of one lemon and little oil and make a paste.
  3. Make slits in few places in the chicken for the marination to get in nicely. Rub the marination paste all over the chicken and let it marinate for at least half an hour in the fridge. Overnight marination would be good.
  4. Transfer it to a baking dish, cover it with aluminium foil and Bake it in a 350 degree F oven for half an hour.
  5. Uncover the dish, transfer the chicken to a new tray and bake it for another 10- 15 minutes to crisp up the outside. Turn the side of the chicken after 10 minutes so that all the sides get crisped up uniformly.
  6. Remove it and transfer it to the serving plate. When it is still hot, add the juice of 1 whole lemon on top of the chicken.

Serving Lemon Pepper Chicken

  • Have as a meal with some pasta and some vegetables.
  • If you make the same with small pieces of chicken, it would be a side with any rice dish too.

Is it possible to make this without microwave? If yes then how should I make it?
Person Dahlia (S.I.R. Author)   (November 19, 2013)
Cook it covered on a saute pan on medium heat. Keep turning once in a while for uniform cooking.

I tried the dish.. The chicken became rough for me.. I cooked in the microoven but it became harder and the chicken was not soft. Anything I can do for this.
