Jan’s Lemon Pepper Chicken


  • 2 tbs. grated lemon peel
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. Engage Organics Garlicsaltless
  • 1 tbs. Engage Organics All-Purpose
  • 1 tsp. Engage Organics Lemon Pepper
  • 2 -2 ½ lb. – 3 lbs. organic fryers, quartered
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced for garnish
  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh parsley


Combine the lemon peel, lemon juice, shallots, and seasonings in a mixing bowl. Place chicken pieces in a single layer in a shallow baking dish and cover with lemon marinade. Turn chicken until it’s thoroughly coated. Refrigerate covered in the marinade 3-4 hours, turning chicken several times to marinate evenly.

Lift chicken from the marinade and drain well on paper towels, reserving the marinade. Place chicken in a single layer in a shallow 2 quart baking dish and brush with melted butter. Bake chicken uncovered at 350 degrees until browned, then lower heat to 325 degrees and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes more or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Garnish with lemon slices.
