Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large lemon thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley (optional)

Instructions

  • Place chicken breasts in a gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Pour in lemon juice, olive oil, lemon pepper, basil, oregano, and salt. Shake it a bit so that all the chicken gets covered.
  • Let marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Remove the chicken from the marinade and place in a 9x13 pan. Discard any remaining marinade. Place lemon slices on top.
  • Cook chicken for 18-20 minutes, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Serve hot. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley (optional).

Notes

If you want to add a little color to your chicken breast, once they are done baking, switch the setting on your oven to broil. Allow the chicken to broil for 2 to 3 minutes until lightly browned.
