lemon basil chicken

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

Ingredients:

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)

Directions:

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.

Let me know what you think!
