Lemon Chicken is a quick and delicious dish to make when you're running short on time. Chicken is a great source of protein, and the olives in this dish are a good source of healthy fat.
This Lemon Chicken is great served over brown rice. Other sides you may want to consider serving with it are green beans or carrots or even a salad.
1. Set oven to broil. Spray boiler rack with cooking spray.
2. Starting at the thickest edge if the chicken breast, cut horizontally until almost to the opposite end. Open the chicken breast so the thickness of each half is even. Repeat for each chicken breast.
3. In a small bowl, mix oil and lemon juice. Drizzle over both sides of chicken breasts. Sprinkle lemon-and-pepper seasoning on each side of the chicken breasts. Place on rack in the broiler pan.
4. Tops of the chicken breasts should be appx. 4 inches from heat. Broil for appx. 10 minutes, turning once. During the last 2 minutes of broiling, place olives and lemon slices on tops of chicken breasts. Make sure that chicken breasts are broiled long enough that the chicken is no longer pink in the center.
