This easy baked lemon pepper chicken recipe only needs 3 ingredients and the loaded mashed potatoes are the perfect side dish!
3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Cooking oil of your choice
Lemon pepper seasoning
3 lbs potatoes
Chopped green onions (optional)
Lemon Pepper Chicken - First you need a mixing bowl large enough to fit the chicken with some room to spare. Pour about 2 inches of oil into the bowl. Sprinkle in the lemon pepper seasoning, give it a good stir.
Then add in all the chicken and toss it around (carefully!) until all the chicken it nicely coated with oil and seasoning.
Next place the chicken in a 13x9 baking dish. I pour a little bit of the oil from the bowl into the baking pan too. Then top the chicken with another dusting of the seasoning. You don't want the oil to completely cover the tops of the chicken.
Bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour at 350.
Loaded Mashed Potatoes - Boil or steam your potatoes and mash them up a bit.
Next add about ¼ -1/3 cup milk and 8 tbsp butter/margarine, mash the potatoes well.
Add ⅓ cup sour cream and ½ - 1 cup shredded cheese. Mix well.
