Ingredients


  • 4-5 ounce Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 3 Teaspoon Fresh Basil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt

Directions


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Trim chicken breast of any fat.

  4. Rub a cookie sheet or spray with olive oil to prevent sticking (or cover the pan with parchment paper). Place the chicken breasts on the sheet pan. Bake for approximately 20–30 minutes: internal temperature of the chicken breast should be 168 degrees.
