Lemon Chicken Bake Recipe

Lemon Chicken Bake Recipe

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. -Marion Lowery, Medford, Oregon
