Crispy Lemon Chicken


  • Dash of pepper
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • Dash of lemon extract or lemon juice


  1. Please lemon juice and chicken tenders in a ziplock bag or Tupperware and marinate overnight. In the morning, drain chicken.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. In a ziplock bag, combine flour, salt, paprika and pepper. Shake well to mix.
  4. Place a few tenders at a time into bag and coat chicken evenly with flour.
  5. Heat oil in a skillet pan. Fry chicken tenders on both sides until nice and brown. (I used 1 Tbsp vegetable oil per 6 tenders) cook for about 4 minutes on each side.
  6. In a shallow baking dish, arrange chicken tenders in a single layer.
  7. Sprinkle lemon zest on top of tenders.
  8. Mix chicken stock and lemon extract or juice and pour over tenders.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is tender.

Servings: Makes 12 tenders/ 4 tenders for 5 Freestyle smart points


The easiest way to get most juice out of a lemon is to heat lemon in the microwave in a microwaveable bowl for about 1 min. Then squeeze the juice from the hole that was made by the escaping steam.
