NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 2 chicken breasts with skin and on the bone
  • 4 paper thin lemon slices
  • 8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 4 sprigs thyme or any fresh herb you like
  • Coarse grained salt and cracked black pepper
  • 1 cup fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 lemon, juiced
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

  • Slide 2 fingers under chicken skin and loosen enough to tuck 2 lemon slices, 4 garlic slices and 1 thyme sprig underneath the skin, directly over the breast meat of each chicken breast. Season chicken generously with salt and pepper. Place chicken in 9 by 13- inch glass baking dish. Pour 1 cup chicken broth, remaining sliced garlic and thyme sprigs in pan bottom.

  • Place in oven and roast until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, about 25 minutes. Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Pour pan juices into a small sauce pot. Add lemon juice. Reduce over medium high heat until sauce has thickened to almost a glaze. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper. Pour juices over chicken and serve immediately.
