Lemon Pepper Chicken & Oven Roasted Veggies


This week I made lemon pepper chicken with oven roasted potatoes & carrots. I did cheat a little bit on the chicken and used a premade lemon-pepper blend. Next time I’ll probably try to be a little bit more grown up and use actual lemon zest & fresh cracked pepper…heck that even sounds a lot better XD. Moving on.

Like I said, for the chicken I just used a premade lemon pepper seasoning from the grocery store, and you could easily use fresh lemon zest and cracked pepper instead.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • Lemon Pepper Seasoning (or lemon for zest & fresh cracked pepper)
  • 3 Potatoes, chopped
  • Baby Carrots
  • 1/2 Onion, chopped
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Butter or Margarine

How To:

  1. Preheat oven to 450
  2. For chicken, simply lay both breasts on a foil lined pan and season both sides with your lemon pepper seasonings of choice. Set aside in fridge until ready to bake
  3. Mix together the potatoes, baby carrots, onion, and salt & pepper to taste
  4. Lay 2 large pieces of foil together, one on top of the other, on the counter
  5. Place your seasoned veggies in the center of the foil and place about 4 tablespoon sized pats of butter or margarine around the pile.
  6. Carefully fold up foil to create a packet, sealing in the veggies and butter. Place on baking sheet & roast in oven for 55 minutes to 1 hour.
  7. Bake the chicken for 20 minutes

This version feeds 2 people, with a little bit of leftover potatoes & carrots. Make sure not to overcook the chicken or it will dry out…like I actually accidentally did as you can tell from the picture lol. Let me know your favorite way to make lemon pepper chicken in the comments below!
