French Herb Roasted Chicken Breasts

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

A quick, low-fat, and aromatic variation on traditional roasted chicken breasts. The marinade ensures they stay moist and the flavour combinations are lovely. I serve this with a simple side of broccoli and water-chestnuts, or root vegetables en batonnet, but you could obviously serve it with whatever you want!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Emulsify all marinade ingredients by whisking in a bowl.
  2. Pour over chicken breasts and seal in a thick zipper bag or airtight container.
  3. Refidgerate for 2-24 hours. The longer the chicken marinates, the more flavour it will absorb.
  4. Remove chicken from refridgerator 10 minutes prior to roasting.
  5. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Remove chicken from container/bag and place on a parchment lined roasting pan.
  7. Spoon remaining marinade over chicken and bake 18-25 minutes, depending on size.
  8. Serve immediately.

It wasnt bad, but the spices were a bit much ...

This was quite good and very moist and flavorful. I cut back on the oil though as I only used 3 large chicken breasts and even that was too much oil. This is not a low fat meal as indicated but delicious anyway.
