Lemon Baked Chicken

When chicken is on sale, you stock up and try to be creative.  I found a recipe on the Weight Watchers website that sounded good (and easy).  I made a couple of substitutions and it came out great!

  • 16 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • Dried parsley flakes
  • Salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Citrus and basil spice rub (or any kind of dry rub you have on hand)
Place the chicken breasts in a shallow baking pan and drizzle olive oil over them, add salt, parsley and the spice rub (I just eyeball these amounts, a dash of salt, few shakes of the parsley and spice rub).  Add the chicken broth and lemon, flip the chicken and add the parsley, salt and spice to the other side.

Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly.

Serves 4
(WW points-3 each)
