Mediterranean Lemon Chicken


Whoever said diet food had to be boring never tried this chicken! Honestly, if you are trying to be healthier this new year & are sick of the typical bland meals, try this or some of my other Macro Friendly Meals.

This Lemon Chicken is packed with flavor & always turns out super moist! I like to pair it with veggies & a side of my famous Garlic & Herb Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes.

(If you are following IIFYM and need to up your carbs feel free to add a side of rice, but for me this is perfect!)
Easy & diet friendly Mediterranean Lemon Chicken, super moist w/ tons of flavor, macro/IIFYM diet friendly


Another reason this meal is a go-to for us is because it is beyond easy--just combine all the ingredients in a baking dish & stick in the oven! Super simple!

  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 12 ounces (frozen) broccoli florets 
  • 2 small tomatoes, chopped

Directions:


  1. Mix all ingredients except tomatoes in a small bowl until well combined
  2. Transfer to a lightly greased (with cooking spray) 9x13 inch baking pan & cover with foil
  3. Bake at 400* for 25-30 minutes
