  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Place chicken breast halves into prepared baking dish. Whisk lemon juice, honey, olive oil, garlic, and oregano together in a bowl and pour the mixture over chicken breasts.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink inside, the juices run clear, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast reads 180 degrees F (80 degrees C), about 45 minutes. Baste chicken with pan juices every 15 minutes while baking.

Very tasty!

I like lemon chicken and this was OK. I have other recipes that I like better. For me I think it was the honey - it was just too sweet for me.

Simple, yet elegant in flavoring. Used rosemary infused olive oil, otherwise followed recipe to a T. A keeper.

Me and my wife both liked it. However, I did modify the recipe through rubbing a little bit of sea-salt on both sides of chicken breasts.
