This Lemon Herb Chicken is not only delicious and jam-packed with protein, it is also super affordable and easy to make.
One chicken breast
A sharp paring knife
One tablespoon of garlic salt
One lemon sliced
1 1/2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1.) Take your chicken breast and make sure that it is completely thawed. Take your sharp paring knife and make a cut into the middle of the chicken on the side. This cut should create a pocket in the middle of the chicken breast.
2.) Spice up your chicken with the Italian seasoning. Try not to go overboard, but try to cover both sides of the breast with the seasoning.
3.) Take two slices of your lemon and place them inside the pocket of the chicken breast.
4.) Place a small searing pan on your oven on low heat. Take the vegetable oil and pour the measurements into the pan. Make sure that the oil covers the entire base of the pan. Shake your garlic salt into the oil.
5.) Once your pan is hot place the chicken breast with the lemon still in the pocket onto the pan. Be sure to maintain low heat, otherwise the Italian seasoning will burn.
6.) Cook the breast evenly on both sides. When flipping be sure that the lemons stay inside the pocket of the chicken. Cook until golden brown.
7.) After the chicken breast is fully cooked move the chicken onto a plate. Remove the lemons from the pocket and squeeze the remaining juice onto the cooked chicken breast. Serve with a side of your choice.
