How to make Lemon Pepper Baked Chicken Thighs

Step 7: Remove from the oven when done and serve the lemon pepper baked chicken thighs right away. Enjoy!
For this recipe, I use bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. I usually get around 6 to 8 pieces depending on the package. You can use chicken breasts instead, and it will be about 4 large pieces.
