Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken


I love the taste of lemon chicken! And the blend of lemon, rosemary, thyme, and garlic in this recipe keeps me coming back to it over and over!


The bonus is that a meal including a good quality protein source such as this one (along with some tasty vegetables) is a great way to boost your metabolism.


By cooking this chicken covered for most of the cooking time, it stays moist and juicy. A little browning at the end is all it needs. Enjoy!

  • 2 Lemons sliced
  • 1 tbsp Rosemary
  • 1 tbsp Thyme
  • 2 cloves Garlic thinly sliced
  • 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 1 tbsp Avocado oil high heat


  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Layer ½ of the lemon slices on the bottom of a baking dish. Sprinkle with ½ of the herbs and ½ of the sliced garlic.
  2. Place the chicken breasts on top and sprinkle salt & pepper. Place remaining lemon, herbs, and garlic on top of the chicken. Drizzle with olive oil. Cover with a lid or foil.
  3. Bake for 45 minutes until chicken is cooked through. If you want the chicken to be a bit more “roasty” then remove the lid/foil and broil for another few minutes (watching carefully not to burn it).
  4. Serve & enjoy!
