Fresh Italian Herb Chicken Breasts
You will want to double this recipe, & add to your salad the next day.
This is an adaptation of my favorite cilantro-lime chicken, and it’s now tied for FAV.
Great to have options!
Makes 6 Servings
- 6 chicken breasts
- One bunch coarse chopped fresh Basil Leaves (about 1/2 cup packed)
- 2 Tbs Fresh Oregano leaves.
- 1 Tbs Fresh Thyme leaves.
- 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2-4 garlic cloves (adds so much flavor & the garlic is good for us!)
- 1 tsp Sea Salt
- 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
Wash, pat dry 6 chicken breasts
Blend basil, oregano, thyme, olive oil, garlic cloves, sea salt and black pepper.
Blend until thick paste or pesto.
Combine all ingredients and the chicken in a ziploc.
Coat chicken well.
Place in the refrigerator to Marinate 2-6 hours}
After marinating the chicken breasts, let sit on counter for 15-20 minutes, then place breasts on a flat sheet pan.
Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes (varies depending on size, do not over cook) just until the juices run clear.
Prep 2 batches at a time, so you have extra protein for the next day!
Serve with fresh tomatoes & sautéed fresh zucchini.
