  • Combine butter, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl; mix until well blended.

  • Place chicken on the prepared pan and brush with 1/2 of the butter mixture.

  • Broil in the preheated oven for 6 minutes. Turn chicken, brush with remaining butter mixture, and broil until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 6 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

A simple and quick way to prepare chicken breasts. I think it's important to always pound out the chicken to an even thickness to prevent over-cooking the thinner end and/or under-cooking the thick end. I pounded mine down to about a 1 1/4" thickness. I suggest you double the butter mixture as there was barely enough to coat 2 breasts, nevermind 4. My chicken was done after 10 minutes, so start checking earlier than 12 minutes. Read More
