Herb Roasted Chicken Breast

The smell of garlic and fresh herbs cooking in the oven is heavenly. Especially, while relaxing at home with the family on a cool crisp winter evening. Curl up on the cozy couch and wait in anticipation of your first bite into this delicious and tender chicken dinner. If you like gravy, I  recommend you make a gravy from the juices of the chicken. Either way it will taste yummy!


  • 4 pieces boneless & skinless chicken breast (preferably organic or antibiotic free)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tbsp paprika
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tsp oregano, dried or fresh
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 handful fresh basil, chopped
  • sea salt


  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tsp spelt or rice flour
  • 1/4 cup hot water


  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees F. In a medium size shallow bowl, add garlic, paprika, lemon, olive oil, oregano and onion powder. Mix all ingredients together. Place all 4 pieces of chicken into the mixture and bath the chicken in sauce
  2. Set aside and let marinade while your oven preheats and you prepare the rest of your meal
  3. Put the chicken into a shallow baking dish, pouring any access sauce into the dish and over top of the chicken. Sprinkle each chicken piece with sea salt, pepper and fresh basil
  4. Put into oven uncovered. Cook for 45 minutes
  5. Remove chicken from oven. Place chicken on your serving plates
  6. Place the baking dish on stove top, on medium heat. Add chicken broth. Once the broth and spices start to boil. Using a fork mix your flour and hot water in a tea mug, until the flour is smooth and not chunky. Add water flour mixture in with boiling broth. Using a wire whisk mix the gravy until it becomes thick. Pour over top of chicken and serve
