Recipe Time: Lemon Butter Chicken

Again, another recipe!  I honestly had such an amazing time going through this old cookbook I acquired from my grandma I just had to make several recipes after I tweaked and modernized them.

This again, was a hit last night with the Wenndt family and we will make it again.  With the left over chicken, I am going to make some tasty chicken salad for lunch!

Lemon Butter Chicken



1 whole chicken (cleaned)
1/2 cup of melted butter (or margarine if you dare, lol)
2 lemons
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
Sea Salt and pepper to taste
Large sized roaster bag (Reynolds makes a great one)
1 tablespoon of flour


1) preheat over to 350
2) take one lemon, cut in half and rub 1/2 lemon over chicken (set the other 1/2 lemon inside the chicken)
3) combine the juice of one lemon along with melted butter, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper
4) add 1 tablespoon of flour to inside roaster bag and shake around to coat the bag
5) add chicken to roaster bag and pour lemon butter mix over chicken
6) seal up roaster bag
7) bake for 1 to 1.5 hours until internal degree of chicken is 180
(I checked the chicken every 30 minutes and with pot holders swished ---love that technical cooking term? LOL- around the lemon butter sauce to re-coat the chicken)
It turned out so tender and juicy the meat just fell off the bone.  YUMMY!!!
