This past week I was on a 3 day juice cleanse so needless to say I didn’t do much cooking. I drank vegetable juices from 9-5 and then at 6 pm had a small dinner with protein and vegetables. 2 of the nights I opted to make simple roasted chicken breast and it was actually really good even though it didn’t have the usual amount of spices that I like to use or any sauces.
This simple roasted chicken is great to have on it’s own, or it can be used as a base for other recipes such as chicken salad.
- 1 lb chicken breast
- Lemon pepper spice mix
- Preheat over to 375
- Wash the chicken breasts and pat dry. Place chicken on a cutting board, cover with plastic wrap and tenderize a bit.
- Season with salt, pepper and lemon pepper spice mix.
- Bake for 40 minutes, turning half way through.
