The great blend of spices on these broiled chicken breasts has a wonderful flavor and pairs well with many vegetable side dishes.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Grease a broiler pan with 1/2 tablespoon olive oil.

  • Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. Brush with remaining olive oil until coated. Sprinkle each piece evenly on both sides with paprika, lemon-pepper, and salt. Place on the prepared broiler pan, sprinkle garlic over top, and sprinkle onions around the base of the chicken, with several smaller pieces on top.

  • Cook under the preheated broiler for 5 minutes. Flip and continue to cook, checking often, until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 5 to 10 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I was torn between 2 and 3 stars on this one, but decided on 3 because some tweaks can be made to improve it. First off, this was way too salty and I'm a big salt fan. As I was mixing together the spice blend, I was thinking it was making an awful lot and that there was a ton of salt since lemon pepper seasoning is already salty as is...but I went with it. On the two chicken breasts, I only used 1/4 of the seasoning I had mixed up because there was so much of it, and it still came out too salty. The amount of seasoning as written would be enough for about 8 breasts. I highly recommend you only make a half batch at most, and leave out the salt - only sprinkle some on at the end if needed. I used 8oz breasts and they were done at 10 minutes. The onions were starting to burn, so keep an eye on things. I do like broiling chicken though, as they tend to come out juicy (assuming you don't overcook them!). Read More

The flavor is subtle with the seasoning measures mentioned. I would add rosemary or increase the lemon pepper and add cayenne. Read More

At first, I wasn't sure of the lemon pepper with paprika, but this turned out to be a great recipe with just a couple of revisions. I ended up squeezing a 1/2 lemon and marinated for a couple of hours. After marinating, I seared the chicken, then placed on the onion and marinade and baked at 350 degrees until complete. Very tasty indeed! Read More

This was perfect just as written! My picture didn’t do it justice. I didn’t broil (baked at 425° until thermometer was at 160°) because my oven won’t let me use the thermometer accessory on broil. Boyfriend said this is one to keep! Read More
