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
- 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
- Preheat the broiler.
- 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.
- Broil the chicken, 4-6 inches from the heat for 6 minutes. Turn them over, brush with some of the herb mixtures, 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.
- Transfer each chicken breast to serving plates and spoon any remaining pan juices.
