One of my favourite recipes Lemon Garlic Chicken


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 200g each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (e.g., thyme, rosemary, oregano)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional: 1/4 cup dry white wine (for deglazing pan)


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. In a shallow dish, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, herbs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add chicken breasts and coat evenly.
  3. Heat a large oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts and sear for 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown.
  4. Optional: Pour white wine into the pan and scrape up any browned bits (deglazing). Let the wine simmer for 1 minute.
  5. Transfer the skillet with chicken to the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 74°C.
  6. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving.


  • You can substitute other herbs like parsley, basil, or tarragon based on your taste.
  • For added flavour, marinate the chicken in the mixture for 30 minutes before cooking.
  • If using thicker chicken breasts, adjust the baking time accordingly.
  • Serve with roasted vegetables, rice, mashed potatoes, or your favourite side dish.

Enjoy! And remember, feel free to experiment with different flavour combinations and cooking techniques to find your own "favourite" chicken breast recipe.
