I didn't have any lemon pepper in the house, but the lemon juice and peel seemed to do the job nicely. Added a bit of garic powder and black pepper. Wonderful and thank you Trisha!

Ok, I know it's "lemony" but I found the lemon overpowering. I would make it again but try it without the lemon juice to see if that tones it down a bit.
