Who doesn’t love Lemon?! I love the fresh and invigorating flavor and smell that gets me going. So for today’s post, I have got two things that I really think you will love. What are they you might ask, well, a recipe and a recommendation.
Let us start with the recommendation; try to drink around 16oz of lukewarm lemon water every morning. I have been drinking mine right after I finish my morning shake, and I feel fabulous! I have tried two different methods for the lemon, and I encourage you to try them as well. Let me know which you prefer. So option one is fresh, raw lemons. This to me is really the best tasting option, but if you don’t want to take the time to slice a lemon and then store what you are not using, then lemon juice works great too. The difference: with the fresh lemon slices, I feel like the taste of the lemon was stronger and more refreshing. When I tried the lemon juice, it did not come through as much as the fresh. Mind you this could possibly be fixed by adding more juice, but trial and error.
I have found that drinking the warm lemon water every morning sort of clears my head. Plus it gives me a good head start on my daily required water in-take. Also, if you need further convincing, check out these articles from Health Ambition, Dr. Axe, and StyleCraze to name a few.
Now on to the recipe.
This recipe is for Lemon Pepper’d Chicken Breast. Sound pretty good right?! It was! The chicken was tender and juicy, and I really loved the lemon flavor.
Here is my super simple recipe. Feel free to improvise if you rather, creativity is always good.
What you will need:
- 6×6 baking dish, tin foil
- 2 boneless and skinless chicken breast
- 1/2 fresh lemon
- 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1/4 cup lemon pepper seasoning (you can just use the whole fresh lemon and ground pepper if you would prefer)
Put it together:
- Preheat oven to 400 degree F.
- Pour chicken broth into bottom of baking dish
- Place raw and thawed chicken in the dish
- Sprinkle Lemon Pepper seasoning atop chicken as evenly as possible
- Slice fresh lemon into 1/4-3/4in. slices.
- Place lemon slices atop seasoning
- Cover dish with tin foil
- Bake for 45 minutes.
That’s it folks. Easy-peasy. I pre-made this on Sunday (we ate it Tuesday night), and left it covered in the fridge until I was ready for it. Again, SOOOO good!
Give it a try! Both the recipe and the recommendation. What do you have to lose? Comment below with questions, comments, or whatever, and I will do my best to answer them!
Until next time!
