This lemon-garlic chicken is super easy to prepare, moist and screaming with flavor... a perfect recipe for those busy weekdays. I would serve it with boiled dill potatoes or steamed vegetables... oh, and make sure you use a good white wine. The first time I made this I used an out of date white wine and it was less than stellar... the wine makes difference!
1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons garlic, minced
1/3 cup white wine
1 tablespoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1 teaspoon salt
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. In a pan, heat olive oil on medium-high and stir in minced garlic. Cook garlic for exactly 1 minute. Add white wine and lemon juice. Stir and remove from heat.
3. Pour mixture into oven safe dish. Place chicken breasts on top of mixture and roll the breasts so that they are coated. Sprinkle breasts with salt, pepper, oregano, lemon zest and fresh thyme.
4. Cut a lemon in quarters and spread around the chicken.
5. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
