  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 2 small lemons, thinly sliced

Step by Step:

  1. Place first 5 ingredients in a heavy-duty zip top freezer bag; add chicken. Seal and refrigerate 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°. Remove rosemary sprigs from marinade and place in the bottom of a lightly greased heavy-duty roasting pan. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade, and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Layer lemon slices evenly over chicken.
  3. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes, or until just cooked through and chicken is no longer pink.
