Baked Breast Chicken with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Baked Breast Chicken with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
It's a simple way to prepare chicken breasts without using any butter or other unhealthy fats. To make the perfect breast chicken with olive oil, start by making sure the chicken has been marinated for hours. Just follow these simple steps to ensure that you end up with juicy, flavorful chicken every time.

  • 2 chicken breasts (thinly sliced)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (we recommend Texana EVOO)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt
  • pepper
  • a squeeze of lemon juice

Marinade Chicken with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Place the chicken breast into a large bowl. Add the garlic, salt, pepper, and extra-virgin olive oil, and lemon. Mix well with your hands. Then let it sit for an hour to soak up the flavor.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Place chicken pieces into a baking pan with sides. Drizzle the extra marinade onto each piece of chicken. 


Serve warm accompanied by a simple green salad.
