Lemon Pepper Chicken Breasts

I really enjoyed the Lemon Pepper Wings that TRex's Dad created..

So I thought I'd try the recipe on chicken breasts:


Used vinegar, salt and sugar - brined the breasts in the mixture first then boiled them in the same mix for 10 minutes:


After boiling, coated in wing sauce, salt, pepper and lots of lemon pepper


And here's the finished result! Not enough fat in a breast to keep the meat juicy, but it still had enough juice to be 'okay.' I should have either taken the skin off or cramked up the heat at the end and crisped it. Still, the family loved it and it was a nice change.


Egg on!

    Wasn't my recipe originally - but the boiling in the vinegar mixture adds a lot of flavor.
