Lemon Pepper Chicken


Every mum needs a stash of last minute meals and what could be easier than grilling some chicken breasts while you make a salad or steam some veges?  And check out those Parmesan Encrusted Potato halves in the background (recipe coming soon!).

Lemon Pepper Chicken


4 Chicken Breasts, boneless and skin removed

1/2 Cup Olive Oil

1/4 Cup Lemon Juice

1 Tbl Lemon Pepper

Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese


Combine the oil, lemon juice and lemon pepper in a bowl.

Add the chicken and allow to marinate for as long as you can.  This does’t mean hours and hours, or overnight.   Remember, it’s a last minute meal, and if left too long the acid in the lemon juice will start to cook the chicken and it will take on a white appearance, so we are talking 30 minutes to an hour here.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade.

Sprinkle the chicken with parmesan cheese and grill or bake in the oven at 180C until the chicken is cooked through.

About Rebekah

Hi, I'm Rebekah, a happily married mum of six who also happens to be a cooking and baking addict and new accidental blogger. I live in Rural Sout-East Queensland, about an hour and a half from Brisbane . I have a 16 year old son who is itching to learn to drive, a 9 year old daughter with Type 1 Diabetes who loves to play her violin and dance her way from one end of the house to the other, 7 year old twins, a son who loves cars, trucks and bike riding with his dad and his twin sister who loves to paint and draw her life and hang it on mummy's fridge. Then there is Little Miss 5, the happiest child I have ever met, very independent, and she dances and sings everywhere she goes, followed closely by her almost 3 year old sister who thinks she is the boss of everything and is a mixture of all of her siblings put together. To say life can be exhausting is an understatement, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Plate4Eight came about through my need to get organized in the kitchen. I no longer have time to go searching through cookbooks and folders for "that recipe we liked last week", and the more organized I am, the more time I have to spend with my family and experiment in the kitchen, which is my form of relaxation. So, if you're looking for something to have for dinner tonight, or just want to try something new, have a look around. I hope you find something you like.
