Yield: 6 servings
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast or tenders
- Juice of 2 Lemons
- 1/3 C Grapeseed Oil
- 1 tsp Sea Salt
- 1 tsp fresh ground Black Pepper
- 1 T dried Oregano
- 1 T dried Thyme
Slice chicken breasts in half to reduce the thickness for pounding. Place halved chicken breasts in between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound thin (to about 1/3").
Combine lemon juice, grapeseed oil, salt, pepper, oregano + thyme in a glass bowl. Add chicken breast. Cover and refrigerate about 3 hours to marinate.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a roasting rack on top. Lay chicken breast out evenly on rack and roast in oven for about 25 minutes.
Internal temperature of chicken should read 165 degrees F.
Think Out of the Ice Box: Eat as is or top with your favorite BBQ sauce. This makes a big batch, so save the leftovers for Tarragon Chicken Salad.
