Ingredients

  • 2 lemons sliced
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 dash salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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).

Notes

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