Lemon Pepper Chicken


2 lbs of split chicken breasts

garlic powder

sea salt

1 lemon

black pepper

1/2 cup of chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 cup of olive oil

Goya Adobo All Purpose Seasoning

1/4 cup of Mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)

Preheat oven 350 degrees. While it is heating up put all the chicken pieces in a large mixing bowl. Pour in olive oil and Mirin. Next roll a lemon back and forth on your counter applying pressure. This will make it easier to squeeze the most juice from it. Cut it in half and squeeze both halves all over the chicken and toss them with spatula. This is to make sure the chicken has been coated evenly. Then place chicken on a non-stick pan pour any left over juice over the meat. Season each side to taste with garlic, pepper, sea salt, and Adobo. I was very liberal with it. Lastly sprinkle the chopped cilantro over top the each chicken breast and garnish with the two halves of lemon.

I set my timer for 45 min to start. Keep in mind my chicken breasts were huge like OMG thick pieces! (Dang mutant chickens) After the 45 mins I checked it by cutting it with a knife and gave it 10 more mins and it was done. So you may have to adjust time based on if you have thinner/thicker pieces. It was moist, flavorful and best of all NOT overcooked!

**I say this cause no matter how good you season chicken breast if you overcook it and it’s dry everyone’s going to think it’s trash. Lmaooooooo sorry but it’s true…
