I’m going to be honest here, ok? My 11 year old daughter has been taking my blog pics. For like – the whole time. I’m going to be honest again – I started cutting this chicken up before she could get an after pic and it went like this:
Now normally, I would put some butter between the skin and the meat, however once my bff got the legs tucked, I just couldn’t get in there. Not a deal breaker. Life goes on.
But trust me, the after was gorgeous and golden! For real. Would I lie to you?
This recipe comes from the Loretty Lynn cook book called “You’re Cookin’ It Country” and I love this thing! The recipes are great, but I love the writing. I swear I hear her talking when I read the stories in there. I’m a big Loretta Lynn fan but I’ve got Southern roots so hearing her talk is like visiting my Mammaw (To Sheldon, it’s MeeMaw…) and listening to her tell stories.
I swear – I also picture Cissy Spacek yellin’ “Dooooooo!” Loved Coal Miner’s Daughter – in this book, Loretta talks about how her husband Doolittle Lynn couldn’t stand Tommy Lee Jones at first. Funny huh?
This is good Baked Lemon Chicken. Trust me.
