Lemon Pepper Chicken

I received a request last week for a one pan, oven made recipe. Lemon pepper chicken with roasted broccoli fills that request very well. It's easy to make, very little clean up and is loaded with lemony flavor. Cooking the chicken in a pouch keeps it moist and infuses it with the spices and lemon flavor. Try it with your favorite veggies!
