This simple and delicious Baked Lemon Chicken is something I always try to make on Sundays and keep on hand to use in salads, pastas and my kids’ lunches for school throughout the week.
- 1 package of skinless boneless chicken
- 2 lemons, use the zest and juice
- 3/4 c. evoo (extra virgin olive oil)
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
In a cup or bowl whisk together the evoo, lemon zest, lemon juice, thyme, salt and pepper. Then in a large plastic ziplock bag pour your marinate over the chicken and refrigerate for 30 minutes (you can skip this step if you need), remove chicken from fridge and let it come to room temperature for about 10 minutes or so and then place all chicken on a baking sheet and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until juices run clear.
Chicken is a great source of protein.
