Baked Lemon Chicken (Seasoned Bread Crumbs)


This lovely chicken is as good cold as it is right out of the oven. It's moist, tender and lemony with a nice crunch. It's a delicious picnic entree as well as a wonderful meal with scalloped or baked potatoes and a fresh green salad on the side. From Marion Lowery: Medford, Oregon. Serving Accompaniments: Fresh Fruit Medley, Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes and Maple Carrot Cupcakes. Recipe published as in Reminisce July/August 2000.
