Lemon Pepper Chicken II

Shred and use it chicken tacos, but it can also be left whole and eaten with veggies and a side salad.



  1. Place the chicken in a gallon size zip lock bag. Add the lemon juice and marinate for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C).
  3. Place chicken in a 9x13" baking dish. Pour the lemon juice from the bag on top of the chicken.
  4. Cut the butter into 4 pieces. Add to baking dish. Sprinkle the lemon pepper seasoning evenly on top of chicken.
  5. Cover with foil and bake 30-35 minutes, or until juices run clear.
  6. Remove dish from oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Take the chicken and place in a medium size bowl and using two forks shred. Serve in taco shells.
  7. Note: if you think the chicken seems a little dry you can pour some of the lemon butter juice from the pan into the chicken.
