  • 4 5 ounce Skinless Boneless Chicken Breast
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 3 Teaspoon Fresh Basil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Trim any fat off chicken breast.
  3. Mince the garlic clove. Combine the garlic, olive oil, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, basil, and sea salt in a bowl. Place the chicken breasts in the same bowl and let marinate for 10–15 minutes.
  4. Spray a cookie sheet with olive oil to prevent sticking. Place the chicken breasts on the sheet pan. Bake for approximately 20–30 minutes.
