Quick Honey-Lemon Chicken

The weeks are just flying by aren't they? I can't believe its already fall. Time to break out the scarves! I've still been very busy with the house hunt so dinner has been very last minute, not giving me a chance to write posts and photograph. This meal, however, was fast and easy which gave me a moment to share it with you.  It has a few ingredients and very easy to make, and of course, the oven does all the work for you. Enjoy!

Honey-lemon Chicken
1 lb chicken tenders, breasts, or thighs
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup lemon juice, plus a few lemon slices for garnish
1 tablespoon rosemary, minced
1 garlic, minced
salt 'n' peppa

1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Arrange chicken in one layer on oven-proof tray and season with salt and pepper.
2 Whisk lemon, honey, rosemary and minced garlic in a bowl and pour over chicken. Arrange lemon slices on tops of chicken and bake for 30 minutes. Done and done!

are the breasts/thighs pounded thin? I have a lemon tree, a rosemary plant, and lots of garlic growing in my garden! Now all I need are bees and chickens!

I skipped the oil & it still came out great. Added a little cinnamon and sugar, too! Hubby's still trying to guess my secret ingredient ; -)

I don't know how to cook and yet this was easy enough for me to understand.
