Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Place chicken breast halves into prepared baking dish. Whisk lemon juice, honey, olive oil, garlic, and oregano together in a bowl and pour the mixture over chicken breasts.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink inside, the juices run clear, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast reads 180 degrees F (80 degrees C), about 45 minutes. Baste chicken with pan juices every 15 minutes while baking.

I marinated the chicken breasts with the mixture rather than using it to pour over, using a little more olive oil than called for, because I grilled them over charcoal rather than baking them. ...

I love this recipe. The flavor is great and it's SOOO easy! I modify it slightly, I use chicken tenders (they cook up quicker) and I cook it stove top rather than baking it. I also double the...

Oh my goodness!! This was delicious. I didn't bake it. I used the ingredients as a marinade and marinated the chicken pieces for about 8 hours. I also added a small amount of black pepper and...

Made this as written and it was definitely tasty, but the honey didn't add much sweetness and I found the sauce to be rather sour (even though I love sour, lemony things). The honey will burn i...

Very tasty!

I like lemon chicken and this was OK. I have other recipes that I like better. For me I think it was the honey - it was just too sweet for me.

Simple, yet elegant in flavoring. Used rosemary infused olive oil, otherwise followed recipe to a T. A keeper.
