As those of you that follow me on Instagram know, I'm doing the Advocare 24 Day Challenge, and I've been posting some of my meals on there. I did a lot of research before starting this and was grateful for any recipe or food idea that I saw, so maybe this will help some of you.
I posted this picture the other night and several of you requested the recipe, so here it is! I took it from another girl who posted on a 24DC site, and we really enjoyed it. I served with brown rice and broccoli. The boys ate it up!
Baked Lemon Thyme Chicken
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
5-6 cloves of garlic, minced
1/3 C. chicken broth (I used a bit more)
Zest from 1 lemon
Juice from 1 lemon
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used 4)
Salt & pepper
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
1 lemon cut into 4 wedges
- Oven 400 degrees.
- Heat olive oil in a skillet and add the minced garlic and cook - stirring constantly - for 1 minute (don't burn the garlic). Add the broth, zest, juice, and herbs to the pan. Pour the olive oil/garlic into the baking dish. Season both sides of chicken with S&P and place in the dish along with the lemon wedges and fresh thyme sprigs.
-Bake 30-40 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
- Drizzle the pan sauce on top of the chicken and serve.
