Honey Lemon Pepper Chicken

I learned about this recipe a long time ago when I went to a friend house for dinner when I was like 8! It was such a delicious way to cook chicken that I made sure I learned how to make it.

4-6 med.- lg. Chicken Breast, Thawed
1 teddy bear jar of Honey
lemon Juice (fresh or bottled) if you use fresh Lemons I used 4-5 depending on size..  
My special Lemon Pepper Seasoning (see Recipe below)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees..

Place thawed Chicken Breast in a 9x13 baking dish with a little bit of water in bottom of dish to avoid dry chicken. Poke chicken w/ a fork a few times and then squeeze lemon juice onto the chicken breasts and let it sit for 10-15 mins or so..  Squeeze a little honey on each and let it soak in(don't worry if it slides off) then sprinkle w/ seasoning.. Cover and cook for 20 mins or so, uncover and add more honey to chicken breast coat well. cook uncovered until done.

My Special Lemon Pepper Seasoning:

Grated Lemon Peel (spice)
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well w/ a spoon.. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. I will update w/ measurements b/c I normally make it w/o measuring. :)
