  • 3 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • ¼ cup water

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 2 lemons, juiced

  • ½ cup bread crumbs

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Arrange chicken breasts in a large baking dish. Pour water, olive oil, and lemon juice over chicken; sprinkle with bread crumbs, garlic powder, parsley, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil and cut a few slits in foil to vent.
