Baked Breaded Lemon Chicken

This baked breaded lemon chicken recipe is a fast go-to dinner choice on a busy day. If you have time to marinate the chicken 4 hours ahead, the flavor is even greater! I use both Panko and regular seasoned bread crumbs to make the chicken extra crunchy, but you can use all regular if you don’t have Panko bread crumbs. I also add more seasoning to the bread crumbs, especially because Panko usually come unseasoned. Serve with rice and vegetables. Tip: Broil the chicken in a toaster oven for a few minutes to make extra crunchy!
