Simple, delicious, tangy chicken breasts baked in a melody of spices using fresh ingredients. Best served over a bed of rice.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 (5 ounce) boneless chicken breasts
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 5 lemons
  • 4 teaspoons dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 tablespoons butter

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. 2 Set chicken breasts into a shallow casserole dish and brush 1 tablespoon honey onto each breast.
  3. 3 Zest 1 lemon, then cut in half. Slice remaining lemons. Squeeze juice from 1 lemon over the tops of the chicken breasts and sprinkle with lemon zest. Combine dill, oregano, basil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and sprinkle spices on top of the chicken. Cover chicken breasts with lemon slices and set 1 tablespoon butter on each piece of chicken breast.
  4. 4 Bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
