Roasted Chicken & Peppers

Ingredients:

2 bone-in, skin-on chicken breast
3 bell peppers, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
lemon pepper seasoning (about 1-2 tbsp depending on your tastes)
4 tbsp butter, softened
salt & pepper
olive oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Place peppers in a roasting pan* and place roasting rack on top of peppers, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Mix butter and lemon pepper seasoning until combined.

Make a small opening in the chicken breast membrane between the skin and flesh of the chicken. Glide your finger down the chicken breast to make room to stuff the butter mixture into the chicken.  Place half the butter mixture in the opening you made in the chicken breast and smooth out by running your fingers over the skin of the chicken.  Do the same with the second chicken breast.  Rub a little butter on the outside of the skin for browning. 

Place chicken on the roasting rack and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. 

Cook in oven for 45-60 minutes, or until meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. 

Place chicken and peppers on a plate and enjoy!



*If you don't have a roasting pan you can use a cookie sheet and cooling rack.
