Great Lemon Chicken Recipes for your Easter Celebration!

Baked Lemon Chicken with Mushroom Sauce


  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
  2. Place the olive oil in an 8×8 glass baking dish. Place the chicken breasts in the dish, coating each side with oil. Squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon over all. Slice the rest of the lemon and place a lemon slice on top of each chicken piece. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes until brown.
  3. In a large skillet, melt the 1/4 cup butter or margarine. Add the sliced mushrooms. Sauté until the mushrooms are brown and have exuded their juices, about 6 minutes. Sprinkle with the flour and blend. Add the chicken broth, stirring to make a medium thick sauce. Allow to reduce, adjusting with a little more broth to make a creamy sauce. Add fresh parsley at the last minute. Spoon the sauce over the lemon baked chicken breasts. Delicious!

  1. I like the idea of a non-traditional recipe like this for Easter dinner. Ham and lamb and all that is wonderful… but sometimes it’s even better to build a tradition on something less conventional. I’d only comment that the thing missing from this recipe is GARLIC! And lots of it. I love my garlic. 🙂

    • Thank you for sharing Karen!

      Yes, I personally love garlic as well. I put garlic in almost all my dishes because the taste of it is just delicious! When I make stir-fries, for instance, I usually let my garlic fry (with a bit of olive oil) in the wok for about 30 seconds or until lightly golden before adding my meat/tofu to really bring out that garlicy aroma and flavor =)
