I made the most delicious chicken recipe tonight and my mouth is still craving more. I don’t even feel bad about tooting my own horn because it was amazeballs. A…maze…balls. It’s from the TIU Nutrition Plan and I will definitely be whipping up this fabulousness again.
IT LOOKS DELICIOUS, RIGHT?!
Okay, so, it’s called Lemon Garlic Chicken and extremely simple to make.
- Two 4 oz. lean, skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- 1 1/2 lemon, squeezed
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1 tsp. basil, finely chopped
- 4 scallions, finely chopped
Note: I did not add the scallions because Kelly detests any kind of onion flavor.
First, mix lemon juice, black pepper, salt, basil, and garlic in a small mixing bowl. Next, put both chicken breasts in a baking dish. Pour marinade over the chicken. Cover the chicken with foil or plastic wrap and let it marinate for approximately 30 minutes. Once the chicken is finished marinading, uncover the chicken and bake for 30 minutes at 325 degrees.
Bam. You have a delicious and healthy chicken entree that can be paired with any vegetable and/or a small portion of quinoa.
