Simple Baked Lemon Chicken
Lemon Rub
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1¼ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 and ¼ cups chicken stock
  • ¼ cup lemon juice*
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3 large chicken breasts (or 6 small/medium breasts or 6 thighs)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the lemon rub ingredients and mix together. Rub the lemon rub on top of the chicken breasts or thighs if you are using them.
  3. In a skillet, preferably one that is oven safe* add the olive oil and allow the skillet to heat up. Place the chicken breasts in the pan and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  4. Add the chicken stock, lemon juice, and lemon zest into the skillet and place in the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until an internal temperature of 175 degrees in reached.
  5. *I used fresh lemon juice because I also needed the lemon zest.
  6. *I used a medium-sized cast iron skillet.
