Date Added: April 23, 2014
A great, easy-to-make meal for a sunny spring day, or any other time - just the right amount of zest to pick your day up! With such a small amount of ingredients that you most likely have in your home anyway, there is no excuse not to make this delightfully zesty meal.


2 Lemons
3 lbs Roasting Chicken quartered
1 teaspoon Pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
1/4 cup Water

Recipe Tools


1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

2. With a vegetable peeler remove zest from lemon in strips and remove any white pith from strips.

3. Coarsely chop enough zest to measure 1 tablespoon, reserving remainder for another use.

4. Squeeze enough juice from lemons to measure 1/4 cup.

5. In a flameproof roasting pan combine juice and chicken, tossing to coat, and arrange chicken skin sides down.

6. Marinate chicken 15 minutes. In an electric coffee/spice grinder grind zest, peppercorns, and salt until finely chopped.

7. Arrange chicken, skin sides up, and pat lemon-pepper onto it.

8. Roast chicken in middle of oven, basting occasionally, until just cooked through, 45 to 50 minutes.

9. Transfer chicken to a platter and keep warm.

10. Add water to juices in roasting pan and simmer, stirring and scraping up any browned bits, until liquid is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes.

11. Pour sauce over chicken.

Alfred Z. - December 15, 2010
I really love to eat chicken that’s why I am experimenting different chicken recipes that would taste to my buds. I love to try the Lemon Pepper Chicken since the dish has a lemon itself, which I love to eat. I am planning to take out a personal loan for this dish of mine since I am very enthusiast of cooking.
