This 15-minute broiler lemon chicken is definitely quick, easy and healthy. If you always look for chicken recipes, this is a keeper.

4 pounds of chicken breasts may sound a bit too much. But I can tell you this. You will be surprised that the chicken will be gone in no time. Don’t expect that there will be any leftover.

15-Minute Broiler Lemon Chicken

Prep Time: 10 Minutes   Cook Time: 15 Minutes   Serving: 4



Ingredients

4 pounds Skinless Boneless Chicken breasts (cut into about 1" x 4" size)
1 Lemon (Juiced)
2 tablespoon EVOO
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
1 Lemon (cut into wedges)
Non-stick cooking spray

  1. Combine everything, except cooking spray and lemon wedges, in a mixing bowl and let the meat marinade overnight
  2. Move the top rack about 5" under the broiler
  3. Preheat broiler
  4. Line aluminum foil on 2 roasting pans for easy clean up later
  5. Lightly coat the pans with non-stick cooking spray
  6. Single layer the chicken on the pan
  7. Allow about 1/4" space around each piece, don't crowd the pans
  8. Put the pan under the broiler for 15 minutes or until golden brown
  9. Let rest about 3 minutes
  10. Serve with lemon wedges and salt on the side


Tips

If the rack can't fit 2 roasting pans at the same time, you definitely need to cook the chicken in batches. You can keep the first batch warm in the oven warmer or transfer to another pan to keep the meat warm on the stove top.

15 minutes should cook through the chicken if you follow the direction. However, different oven has different personality, so as the broiler. The chicken is cooked through does not mean that it is brown all the way through either. If that's the case, leave the chicken under the broiler for 5 - 10 more minutes. Add 5 minutes at a time. Then, the meat will not burn.
