Easy Lemon Herb Chicken

Lemon Herb Chicken BreastYou only need four ingredients to make this easy chicken recipe. Well, four plus the chicken. For anyone just learning to cook or simply short on time, this oven-baked chicken is quick, easy and healthy. I make a basting sauce of fresh lemon juice and garlic with olive oil and herbs. The chicken bakes in the oven, you baste it a couple of times, and it’s ready in 30 minutes. And get this: I line my baking pan with foil so there’s no cleanup!

For my herbs, I use a prepared formula of Italian dried herbs that includes basil, rosemary, thyme & oregano but you can use your own favorite mix. Or just use one herb that you like. Once the chicken is cooked, you let it rest for 5-10 minutes, then slice it and pour all the juices left in the pan over the chicken, making sure you get all the bits of garlic too. The combination of garlic, herbs, and lemon goes perfectly with chicken. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

    I have never been much of a cook but you make it look like it’s so much fun! I can’t wait to try your meatloaf and your beef stew! Love your U-Tube videos! You are so inspiring and you have a great sense of humor!

      Could you help with the measurement of the herbs that you used. Four of them, I think but not sure of how much of each. Thanks again.

      • Jenny

        It’s 1/2 teaspoon total of either a mix or one single herb – only 1/2 teaspoon total.

    Your U-tube presence is absolutely wonderful, warm and inviting. The food you prepare sounds delightful delicious. I haven’t tried all your recipes; however, the ones I have tried are great and worth marking as ‘tried-and-true-keeper’.

    In addition, your colorful kitchen nick-nacks are beautiful and you dress so eye catchingly that it makes whatever you are doing “POP” as it reflects a happy life. Thank you for down to earth cooking videos.

    Blessings on you.
