Easy healthy baked lemon chicken that is loaded with yummy flavor and you can make in a hurry with just a few simple ingredients.

Hellooooooo! Did you survive the weekend? I spent mine in Portland – my first time in Oregon and I l.o.v.e.d. it. I only wish I’d had more time to explore the city but the good news is that this was just a preview and we are planning a family trip to the Oregon Coast this summer which is a good thing because I NEED more marionberry ice cream.

I couldn’t tell you why but the entire time I was out of town I was craving lemon chicken. I keep a running list of recipe ideas in my phone and when we were on the train going from the airport to our hotel I added lemon chicken to my menu for this week and its been in the back of my mind ever since.

After waiting all weekend to try it out, I am so in love with out this healthy baked lemon chicken turned out! It is juicy, tender, savory with a hint of sweetness, and so so easy to make. I served it with pan roasted garlic asparagus and it was heaven! Bottom line: You need this, you really really do.
