Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken Breasts

Serves 4


-2 lemons, sliced

-1 tablespoon rosemary

-1 tablespoon thyme

-2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

-4 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)

-dash salt & pepper

-1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 425F.  Layer ½ of the lemon slices on the bottom of a baking dish.  Sprinkle with ½ of the herbs and ½ of the sliced garlic.

2. Place the chicken breasts on top and sprinkle salt & pepper.  Place remaining lemon, herbs and garlic on top of the chicken.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Cover with a lid or foil.

3.Bake for 45 minutes until chicken is cooked through.  If you want the chicken to be a bit more “roasty” then remove the lid/foil and broil for another few minutes (watching carefully not to burn it).


Serve & enjoy!


Tip: You can add a leftover sliced chicken breast to your salad for lunch the next day!
