Lemon Chicken- 2 points, Menu Plan

It doesn't feel anything like spring in Tennessee, but that doesn't mean it can't taste like it. If you are lucky enough to have grilling weather, use the sauce as a marinade and throw your chicken strips on the grill. Either way, you can't help but savor the delicious lemon and herb sauce that coats these low point chicken treats.

Lemon Chicken
22 oz chicken breast strips
2 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp fresh basil, chopped
6 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

1. Whisk lemon juice with garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk in olive oil, thyme, and rosemary. Taste and adjust seasoning.
2. Place chicken in the bottom of an oven safe dish; pour sauce over chicken. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until meat is cooked through and springy to touch.
3. Yields 11, 2 point servings
