(Lean Protein): Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken Breasts

This is a simple recipe that can be prepared for a healthy lunch or dinner.  You can also slice the chicken breast to add to a salad. 


  • 2 each lemons, sliced
  • 1 tbsp rosemary
  • 1 tbsp thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 4 each chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
  • 1 tbsp 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.

    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).
