Lemon pepper is a popular ingredient in many recipes. It is perfect on chicken, a burger, or pasta. Problem is, it can sometimes be difficult to find lemon pepper seasoning in the grocery store. Or maybe you just want to make up your own batch because it's better than what you buy in the store. This easy recipe is a great way to start making the kinds of seasonings you want, specifically formulated for your tastes.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in a spice grinder or a clean coffee grinder. Ideally, you'll want a coarse grind so do not grind into a fine powder.
  2. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. The lemon pepper seasoning will retain its flavor for up to 6 months.

How to Use Lemon Pepper Seasoning

Use this mixture for marinades. For smaller items like chicken breasts (4), use 2 tablespoons of mixture with the juice of 1 large lemon and 1/4 cup of oil.
