Ingredients

For the Chicken:

  • 4 chicken breasts skinless boneless
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary or 1/2 tablespoon fresh, minced rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 2 medium lemons zested then sliced thin (the zest will be used for the broccoli)For the broccoli:
  • 1 to 2 heads broccoli you'll want 6 to 8 cups if this is your only side dish
  • 2 tablespoons  liquid coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • lemon zest from lemons above

Instructions

  • Cut or pound chicken so that it is no thicker than 1 inch. (This way everything will cook evenly and at the same time.)
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place chicken in a bowl or zip-top bag and add oil, then remaining ingredients except the lemon slices. Rub chicken so that the oil and seasonings coat the chicken.
  • Place the chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet. I use one 21x15 inch sheet pan, you may use 2 cookie sheets also.)
  • Place the lemon slices on top of the chicken.
  • Spread the broccoli on the baking sheet and drizzle with oil, seasonings, and zest. Toss to coat. Spread into a single layer.
  • Bake 25 to 30 minutes, uncovered.
  • Serve hot. Enjoy!
