Healthy Recipe: Broiled Herb Chicken Breast

healthy recipe header

Broiled chicken breast is so underrated. That’s unfortunate as broiling produces a far superior chicken breast. They come out beautifully caramelized on the outside, almost grilled-like, juicy on the inside, crusted with pieces of roasted garlic and herbs. Plus, it comes out without all the extra fat that comes with pan-frying. It’s delicious!

Broiled Herb Chicken Breast Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp I can’t believe it’s not butter
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4-4 oz chicken breasts

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. In a shallow, baking dish large enough to hold the chicken in a single layer, combine the lemon juice, butter, oil, Worcestershire sauce and the herbs. Add the chicken and turn to coat.
  3. Broil the chicken, 4-6 inches from the heat for 6 minutes. Turn them over, brush with some of the herb mixture, and broil for 6 minutes. Turn them over again, brush with more of the herb mixture, and broil for 6 more minutes or until the juice runs clear.
  4. Transfer each chicken breast to serving plates and spoon any remaining pan juices.

Servings: 4 protein
