Lemon Pepper Chicken Tenderloins

This lemon was from the downtown farmers’ market. Go local!

Lemon zest, juice, and slices- you can eat it all!

The lemon flavor was so refreshing! The lemon slices become very soft and retain their juices. I think using a local lemon made this dish even more tasty.

A new take on chicken tenders

Lemon Pepper Chicken Tenderloins


  • 1 lb boneless chicken tenderloins
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large lemon (local- from farmers’ market)
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt
  • dash freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place chicken tenders in a 13 x 9″ baking dish. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top of chicken.
  2. Zest a lemon over chicken. Cut lemon into circles. Pour juice from cutting board on top of chicken and place lemon circles around chicken tenderloins in the baking dish.
  3. Add salt, pepper, and parsley on top of chicken. Roll chicken to coat both sides. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked.

Serves: 2
