Tasty Tuesday and Herb Chicken

Hi friends! We have an easy  herb chicken recipe to share that works with the herbs you have on hand, super flexible and delicious! We are watching our weight so we’ve been making meals cutting some calories where we can. This is a tasty one!

So without further ado, let’s begin!

Ingredients :

  •  About 3 lbs chicken either boneless breast or thighs (we used thighs) 1-3 per person depending on size
  • 5 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp crushed garlic
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

Preheat the oven to 375° if using boneless thighs, 400° for boneless breast. In small bowl add your olive oil and garlic. Rub or brush the garlic oil mixture over each piece of chicken.

Add seasonings in a small bowl and stir.

Sprinkle the herbs on both sides of each piece of chicken. Use according to your preference. Arrange in a 9×13 baking dish, and cover/seal with foil. Refrigerate to marinate at least an hour (2 is even better)

Bake covered 35 min (more or less depending on size of your chicken pieces) and then if you like you can broil uncovered 5 min. To crisp it up a bit.

Yum! That is all there is to it! We served it with corn on the cob, fruit and fresh veggies.

The chicken was tender, savory and juicy!

My husband loved it. He said he could imagine it with mashed potatoes and biscuits on a cold winter night.

Isn’t it amazing how certain seasonings just bring food to life?

Seasonings are a lot like all of the fun things we add into life. The more we add the better! Go ahead and get the flowers! They are one of the loveliest parts of life! Truth, I bought the $5 bouquet yesterday at the grocery store and the clerk said she can’t help herself, she’s always getting flowers!

Or plan a weekend getaway somewhere fun! Or go ahead and get that puppy or kitten you’ve been thinking about! Or take your friend out for coffee or an ice cream! The point is these are fun things that we can enjoy and there’s no need to postpone the things that delight us! They are the spice of life!

Have a great week!

I’ll be back this weekend with another post!

Love Always,
