Healthy Lemon Chicken

So many people have been asking me for healthy low fat and low carb recipes.  This one is light and fresh and really yummy.  Healthy doesn't mean tasteless.


4 Skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons chopped fresh or dried basil leaves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive or canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic, finely chopped


Remove any visible fat from chicken.
Combine the basil, parsely, lemon juice, oil and garlic in a bowl and stir well.
Place the chicken and the sauce in a blastic bag and marinate for an hour in the fridge.
Spray a pan with cooking spray and on high heat brown the chicken on both sides.
Reduce the heat and cook chicken for 15 minutes or until juices run clear. Use the sauce to keep basting the chicken.
Remove the chicken from the pan.
Serves 4
