Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • Add olive oil, garlic, honey, lime juice, soy sauce, salt, pepper and chicken breasts to a large zipper bag or bowl and toss together.
  • Lightly coat a baking dish or skillet that is oven and stovetop safe with oil and place the chicken breasts into the dish.
  • Brown the chicken breasts over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes on each side.
  • Remove from heat and add a large spoonful of marinade over each chicken breast.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until cooked all the way through (meat thermometer should read 165°). If your dish is not oven safe, place chicken into a casserole baking dish before putting in the oven.
  • Remove from oven, top each chicken breast with lime wedges and parsley.
  • Cover the dish with foil for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

NOTE: Extra virgin olive oil should not smoke in an oven at this oven temperature and with this short amount of baking time, but you can use grapeseed oil or omit the olive oil if you prefer. Grapeseed oil has a higher smoking point than EVOO.
