This is a must! Crispy, juicy chicken packed with delicious lemon pepper flavour is the perfect dinner meal to serve your loved ones. Easy to throw together with only a few ingredients, this unfussy recipe is like going back to the basics. Perfectly oven-baked chicken with incredible flavour that you cannot say no to.

Ingredients

2.5 lbs Chicken Thighs or Chicken Breasts

2 tbsp Olive Oil

2 tbsp Lemon Juice

1 tbsp Lemon Pepper Seasoning

1 tsp Salt

1 tsp Garlic Powder

½ tsp Onion Powder

½ tsp Italian Seasoning

How to make Lemon Pepper Baked Chicken Thighs

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees.

Step 2: With foil, line a large baking sheet. Set aside.

Step 3: Using paper towels, pat the chicken dry and transfer the chicken on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 4: In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil and lemon juice.

Step 5: Over both sides of the chicken, evenly drizzle the olive oil mixture. Then, rub to coat.

Step 6: Place the lemon pepper seasoning, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and paprika in a different small bowl. Stir to combine.

Step 7: Evenly sprinkle the entire chicken with the spices.

Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven. Bake for about 35 to 45 minutes until the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165 degrees.

NOTE:

For this recipe, I always use bone-in, skin-on, chicken thighs. I normally get about 6 to 8 pieces depending on the package. But if using chicken breasts, it will be around 4 large pieces.
