  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Lemon slices, for garnish
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


  1. Marinate the chicken: In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried thyme, dried rosemary, dried oregano, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag, and pour the marinade over them. Ensure that the chicken is evenly coated in the marinade. Cover the dish or seal the bag, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours, to allow the flavors to meld.
  2. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil.
  3. Bake the chicken: Transfer the marinated chicken breasts to the prepared baking dish. Arrange them in a single layer. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (75°C). If desired, you can broil the chicken for an additional 2-3 minutes at the end to achieve a golden brown exterior.
  4. Serve: Remove the baked Lemon Herb Chicken from the oven. Garnish with lemon slices and chopped fresh parsley for a vibrant presentation. Serve hot alongside your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a crisp salad.

Enjoy the delightful flavors and tender texture of this Baked Lemon Herb Chicken, a simple yet elegant dish that’s sure to impress!
