Lemon Chicken

This is one of my favorite meals...Lemon Chicken.  It's so easy it is almost embarrassing to post:)  The best part is its pretty darn healthy...if you look back at the other main dishes I have posted...this doesn't even have heavy cream!  It does have butter...but thats ok.

When I decide to do a week of lemon week...I like to try new recipes and try to find a gem.  I should always use what I have.  I have tried so many lemon recipes and they have failed...miserably.  I finally decided to just to go to my favorite and go with that.  So here's to failed recipes so you can have this fabulous Lemon Chicken and a huge thanks to a friend, Jodi, who gave this to me YEARS ago!

Lemon Chicken

4 chicken breasts
Juice from 2 lemons
Lemon zest from 2 lemons
1 packet Italian dressing mix
1 stick butter, melted

Zest the lemons.  Dip chicken in lemon juice.  Put in glass baking pan.  Sprinkle Italian dressing mix on top of the chicken, put lots on (you won't use the whole packet).  Pour butter over chicken.  Sprinkle lemon zest on top of chicken.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until no longer pink.

Parmesan Croissants

1 pkg. Croissants
Italian dressing
Parmesan cheese

Unfold croissants.  Brush Italian dressing on both sides of croissants.  Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Grill on both sides, or bake at 375 degrees until golden brown, about 11 minutes.
