Lemon Pepper Chicken

In my house, this recipe is sometimes referred to as the cursed chicken.  Why you might ask?  I have a good reason for calling it that.  The several times I made it, M was HOURS late coming home for work, so my poor chicken ended up being in the oven at least 3 or 4 times longer than it needed to be.  The first time, he got stuck in traffic in the cities.  The second time I snuck over to his house during the week (he lived about an hour away from me when we were dating) to surprise him with dinner when he was having a bad day and our plans to go to a Twins game had fallen through.  He was supposed to be home at six, he didn't get home until 8:45.  I was not very happy.  So this became the cursed chicken.  Now whenever I make it, I always make sure it's on a day when he is not work and when he is home and in my sight during the entire time it's cooking.  :)

Please don't be scared to try this recipe   It's super easy and great for a week night home cooked meal.  Pair with some freezer corn and Puck Biscuits and you have a home cooked meal in under an hour!

1 package of chicken breasts (2-3 breasts approx 1 1/2 lbs)
1 Tablespoon butter
Lemon Pepper Seasoning

Line an 8x8 backing pan with tin foil.  Melt the butter and using a basting brush, brush the butter onto both sides of the chicken breasts.  Sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning.  Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes (halfway through, turn the breasts over and sprinkle the other side with seasoning).  Make sure the chicken is cooked through - check with a meat thermometer, it should be at 180 degrees.
