Are you in need of a quick and easy chicken recipe? Well this Easy Lemon Chicken is a staple in our house. This recipe can stand alone or you can shred the chicken to make chicken salad, top salads, and so much more. I consider this recipe "easy" because it only has 6 ingredients, and take roughly 45 minutes to make (including a marinade!).
The key components to this recipe are to use a quick lemon marinade and a high cooking temperature in the oven to save time. Do NOT over marinate the chicken, because the acid in lemon juice can actually cook the chicken and make it tough. Make sure the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees for safe eating. I swear by my digital meat thermometer. It keeps me from over cooking my chicken.
