Lemon Chicken!

Lori’s Lean Lemon Chicken
Makes 4 Servings
Points: 3

2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp lemon pepper
½ tsp seasoned salt
4 small (1/4 lb) boneless skinless chicken breast
I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter! Spray
1 cup lemon juice, preferably fresh squeezed (4 – 5 lemons)
4 slices lemon

1.       Preheat oven to 400. Lightly mist an 8 x 8 glass or nonstick baking dish with olive oil spray
2.       In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, lemon pepper, and seasoned salt.  Mix to blend.  Place the chicken on a large plate or platter.  Rub seasoning mixture evenly over the chicken.  Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 15 minutes for the seasonings to flavor the chicken.
3.       Place a large nonstick skillet over high heat until it is hot enough for a spritz of water to sizzle on it.  With an oven mitt, briefly remove the pan from the heat to mist lightly with olive oil spray.  Place the chicken in the pan.  Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until browned.  Place the chicken, smooth sides up and not overlapping, in the prepared baking dish.  Spray each breast with 2 spritzes of I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter! Spray.  Pour the lemon juice over the chicken.  Top each breast with a lemon slice.
4.       Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until no longer pink and the juices run clear.  Remove from oven.  Baste with the pan juices.  Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
