You can marinate the chicken in the lemon garlic basil marinade for up to 2 hours before cooking. This chicken can be baked, grilled, or broiled.
Ingredients
  • 4 five-oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 3 tsp. fresh basil
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Trim chicken breast of any fat.
  3. Mince the garlic clove. Combine the garlic, olive oil, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, basil, and sea salt in a bowl. Place the chicken breasts in the same bowl and let marinate for 10–15 minutes if desired.
  4. Rub a cookie sheet or spray with olive oil to prevent sticking (or cover the pan with parchment paper). Place the chicken breasts on the sheet pan. Bake for approximately 20–30 minutes: internal temperature of the chicken breast should be 168 degrees.
