Some days, trying to figure out what to make for dinner can seem like a herculean task! On days that are like that, I like to fall back on tried and true simple recipes. One’s that you know everybody likes and that are simple and quick to make. One of my go-to recipes is Lemon Garlic Chicken. It only requires a few basic ingredients that you probably already have at home and it tastes delicious!
4 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon
4-6 cloves of garlic (depending on how garlicky you like things)
3 Tbsp of olive oil
1 Tbsp of water
1/4-1/2 tsp of salt
3 tsp dried oregano
4 chicken breasts (I only had boneless, but it tastes even better if you make it with bone-in chicken)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Put all the ingredients (except the chicken) into the blender and puree it.
3. Pour the marinade over the chicken and mix it in until all the chicken is covered.
4. Place the chicken (bone side down) on a lined baking sheet and let it cook for 25-30 minutes. (I flipped the chicken pieces over after about 20 minutes.)
(This recipe also tastes amazing if you cook in on the BBQ, bone side down.)
And that’s it, you have a delicious and very simple recipe ready for dinner! I like serving this with Greek Quinoa Salad. And it’s perfect leftovers for the next day’s lunch.
