Healthy Lemon Baked Chicken

Hey Friends, after waiting so long all weekend to try it out this, I am amazed that it was worth the wait because I really love how this healthy lemon baked chicken turned out at last! It is juicy, tender, savory with a hint of sweetness, and moreover so so easy to make. And It’s one of my favorite chicken recipes of all time now.


At the point when I returned home from my outing and made this dish, I served mine close by asparagus, and it was flavorful. Different thoughts for sides that go with lemon chicken include:

Rice. Regardless of whether you cook white, earthy colored, wild, or pre-bundled rice pilaf or other rice dishes, I think rice consistently combines well with chicken.

Simmered vegetables. On the off chance if you are not a fan of asparagus, what about broccoli, string beans, or Brussels grows?

Egg noodles. I love egg noodles whichever way. Be that as it may, concoct a bundle of them and add a lemon chicken bosom to the top at that point spoon a portion of the dish squeezes over that with an additional crush of lemon

Serving of mixed greens. Another most loved side of mine is a basic side serving of mixed greens. Utilize whatever greens and veggies you have close by to make a unique nutritious veggie dish to crunch on in the middle of nibbles of lemony chicken.

Potatoes. For another flavorful, side choice, I generally go for potatoes. Pounded, prepared, or cooked, you truly can’t turn out badly with lemon chicken and potatoes.

Important Tip-

Marinating chicken in just lemon juice will likewise dry it out. But you do like your chicken more lemony, you can marinate it as long as two hours in a glass or plastic bowl with a top or in an airtight plastic sack. I would recommend you to use a lemon marinade rather than straight-up lemon squeeze that incorporates olive oil or another fat and a few flavors to shield the lemon juice from separating the chicken and drying it out.
