Easy healthy baked lemon chicken that is loaded with yummy flavor and you can make in a hurry with just a few simple ingredients.

Serves: 4


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

3 tablespoons butter

⅓ cup chicken broth

4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon honey

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

salt and pepper to taste (I used 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper)

optional: fresh rosemary and lemon slices for garnish


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking sheet or large casserole dish.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook chicken 2-3 minutes on each side just until browned. Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet.

In a small bowl whisk together chicken broth, lemon juice, honey, garlic, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper.

Pour sauce over chicken. Bake 20-30 minutes (closer to 20 for smaller chicken breasts, closer to 30 for larger) until chicken is cooked through. Every 5-10 minutes spoon the sauce from the pan over the chicken.

Garnish with fresh rosemary and lemon slices if desired and serve.
