hd-aspect-1504195270-lemon-pepper-chicke
This recipe starts on the stovetop for a perfect golden sear then finishes in the oven for the juiciest, most flavorful results. If you don't want to turn on your oven, you can do everything over the stovetop. Just cover the skillet with a lid after you add the sauce ingredients, reduce heat to medium, and cook for about 12 minutes.
