Skinless, bone less chicken is a real staple in my nutrition plan, and luckily there are hundreds of ways to dress up chicken for great taste while still remaining healthy.
Here is a recipe I recently found at CarlsbadCravings.com. Let’s take a look.
Makes: 4 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
4 skinless, boneless Chicken Breasts
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Dry Basil
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Oregano
1/4 tsp Ground Mustard
Dash of Red Pepper Flakes (optional)
Place chicken inside a freezer bag. If you like you can pound chicken thin with a meat mallet or by using the side of a can.
Whisk together the marinade ingredients and add to chicken. Zip lock bag and squeeze out extra air. Shake well to cover chicken well. Place chicken in refrigerator and marinade for 4 hours or longer.
Pre-heat a skillet or a grill to medium high and coat with 1 tbsp of olive oil. Add chicken and cook for about 5-6 minutes each side or until browned to your liking on both sides.
This is a great recipe for eating straight up with whatever sides you like, or enjoy in pasta, salad, wraps, sandwiches, etc.
