If you know me in real life, then you know that I LOVE food.
Chicken, beef, sweets, soups, salads, homemade, take out. You name it, I’m a fan.
So, I decided that I am going to start cataloging some of my favorite foods here on The Rustic Lens, all while getting to practice and perfect food photography.
All you’ll have to do is check back here often, and click the “Food” tab on the top menu bar.
So, to get us started off on our Food Adventures, is Lemon Pepper Chicken.
All you will need for this simple, mouth-watering recipe is:
- 1 whole chicken
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 2 tablespoons pepper
- 2 tablespoons Lemon Pepper seasoning
- 2 lemons
- 1 onion
- and 1 big appetite
To start, pour the olive oil over the chicken and rub it in. This serves several purposes. The oil keeps the chicken skin moist so it can brown well in the oven without burning. It also helps keep the other ingredients stuck on the chicken….and it just tastes good. Then, zest and squeeze both lemons over the chicken, and stuff the chicken with the left over lemons and the halved onion. Sprinkle the salt, pepper and Lemon Pepper seasoning and rub in. Cook the chicken 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of your chicken.
