This chicken recipe is really fast and easy to make. It’s also on a healthy side and taste nothing short of delicious. I usually double the recipe so that we have some leftovers for another day. Here is how you make it.


  • 2 medium lemons, sliced
  • 4 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 garlic cloves, quartered
  • 1 pound uncooked chicken thighs or boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Layer ½ lemon slices and 1 sprig of rosemary on the bottom of a baking dish.  Scatter ½ of garlic around the pan.
  • Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper.  Lay chicken on top of lemon rosemary bed.
  • Place remaining lemon slices on top of chicken breasts.  Place rosemary sprigs between the chicken breasts.  Sprinkle with remaining garlic.  Drizzle chicken breasts with olive oil.
  • Bake for 40-60 minutes until chicken is cooked through (1 pound takes about 40-45 minutes).  Cover with aluminum foil for 5-10 minutes and let the chicken rest. Serve and enjoy!
