Lemon Herb Chicken Breast

Skinless chicken breast is lean and low fat and oven-baking on foil means less cleanup. I use an Italian mix of herbs (basil, rosemary, thyme & oregano) but you can use your own favorite mix. The second time you baste, be sure to pour all the remaining sauce over the chicken. I use a 9 x 9-inch pan. - Jenny Jones
