  • Paleo – substitute clarified butter/ghee, or olive oil for butter

  • Whole 30 – no adjustments needed

Quick and Easy Lemon Chicken Recipe

Lemon Chicken Ingredients

  • 3-4 boneless and skinless chicken breast/cut in ½ on the horizontal
  • 1 pound of fresh asparagus
  • 8 mini peppers (Or 2 big ones cut in quarters)
  • 1-2 full garlic bulb
  • Olive oil
  • Zest of a full lemon
  • ½ teaspoon of each, dry Thyme and dry Rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon of dry Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of butter
  • 1/2 lemon cut into slices
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

You’ll find these kitchen tools useful (I've included affiliate links to the products I use at home):

  • Large Sheet Pan, I use a commercial-sized sheet pan, I find the larger surface allows room to spread everything out and for an even bake.
  • Silpat Baking Mat, this is one of my favorite kitchen tools because you can use it over and over again (after washing) and it evenly bakes whatever you have on the sheet pan.  Or cooking spray works great for this recipe.
  • Instant Thermometer, this way you know the chicken is at proper temperature before removing from oven.
