This skillet cooking method calls for thin pieces of chicken that cook quickly, such as skinless, boneless chicken breasts (cut into smaller pieces), tenders for chicken or chicken breasts sliced thinly, and chicken legs. The method described isn’t recommended for chickens with bones.
DO I NEED FRESH LEMON?
Nope! Although I did garnish this dish with freshly cut lemons (I had leftover lemon slices from an earlier container), You don’t require fresh lemons to cook this lemon pepper chicken! The lemony taste comes from the strong flavor of the lemon pepper. The small quantity of lemon juice added to the sauce may be preserved in bottles.
WHAT IS LEMON PEPPER SEASONING?
The flavoring of the lemon pepper I use to spice this recipe is a blend of lemon zest and pepper, citric acid, and salt. Major brands of spices within the U.S. as well as the majority of generic store brands, create the lemon pepper spice themselves. Hence, it’s likely to be a breeze to locate in almost any supermarket within the U.S. If you cannot get lemon peppers at the local grocery store, there are a lot of recipes on the internet for making homemade lemon pepper spice.
Be sure to verify whether the lemon pepper seasoning is salt-free. If not, you might require adding more salt to the dish below.
