Healthy baked lemon rosemary chicken breasts

Baked Lemon Rosemary Chicken

Chicken breasts are my main source of animal based protein, so I tend to eat them a lot. I know you know that this can get a little boring. So I am always on the lookout for ways to jazz it up a bit. As part of my work, I try a lot of recipes. Although they are very varied in types of foods, they also vary according to the meal.  For example, I would not bake chicken breasts for breakfast, though someone may, and I encourage them to do it if this is their preference. Anyway, my point is…  I have maid this recipe numerous times and still cannot get enough.  The fresh tangy flavor of the lemon pairs amazingly well with the fresh rosemary. I enjoy this with a simple garden salad and lots of bread to dip in all that lemony goodness.  Take my word for it, this is one healthy lemon rosemary chicken recipe you will want to try for yourself.
