Lemon, Lemon, Lemon Chicken!


Ok, too many lemons? I think not!!

This garlicky, lemon sauce was stupendous!

My heart went pitter-patter!

And you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry...

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lemon zested
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 package chicken tenders

Grab a total of 3 lemons for this recipe. Zest one lemon first, set aside then use that lemon for the sauce. The other 2 lemons, slice for on top of the chicken.

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400.
  2. Combine the olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, honey, garlic and zest in a bowl and whisk till combined.
  3. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Pour about 3/4 of the sauce on the bottom, reserve the rest.
  4. Place the chicken on top of the sauce.
  5. Season with S&P.
  6. Lay the lemon slices on top.
  7. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes, more if you are using chicken breasts.
  8. Drizzle the rest of the sauce over the chicken about 5 minutes before your time is up.

You could serve it over pasta, the lemon/garlic sauce would be awesome over pasta! I made brown rice and roasted parmesan asparagus.

Enjoy!
