basil baked chickenIngredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, washed and chopped into ribbons
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic (~1/2 a clove)
  • Salt & Pepper (~1 teaspoon each)


Preheat oven to 400°F. While the oven is preheating, spray a glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.  Put the chicken in the dish and drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice.  Add on the basil, salt, pepper, and garlic and rub into the chicken until all sides of all of the chicken breasts are coated.  Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30-40 minutes.  When cut open there will be no pink in the chicken and a meat thermometer will read 165°F. Goes great with basil and broccoli rice. Enjoy!
