 Fresh Herbed Chicken Breasts Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat broiler on high. Place ovenproof metal pan under broiler to get hot. Do not use glass or Pyrex for this.
  2. Season chicken with a little salt and pepper. When pan is very hot (which takes about 5 minutes), put chicken in pan and return it to broiler. Turn heat to low. Don't put it too close to the heating element. It is best to put in middle of the oven, about 7 inches from the heat source. (Quick Broil) for about 15 minutes, or until done, depending on thickness of chicken.
  3. While chicken is cooking chop herbs.
  4. In a small skillet, add chopped herbs, lemon juice, broth, pressed garlic, salt, and pepper. Heat on medium heat for about 30 seconds.
  5. When chicken is done remove skin, slice, and place on platter. Drizzle herb sauce over chicken.

Introduction to Recipe Rating System Chart

In order to better help you identify recipes that feature a high concentration of nutrients for the calories they contain, we created a Recipe Rating System. This system allows us to highlight the recipes that are especially rich in particular nutrients. The following chart shows the nutrients for which Fresh Herbed Chicken Breasts is either an excellent, very good, or good source (below the chart you will find a table that explains these qualifications). If a nutrient is not listed in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that the recipe doesn't contain it. It simply means that the nutrient is not provided in a sufficient amount or concentration to meet our rating criteria. (To view this recipe's in-depth nutritional profile that includes values for dozens of nutrients - not just the ones rated as excellent, very good, or good - please use the link below the chart.) To read this chart accurately, you'll need to glance back up to see the ingredients used in the recipe and the number of serving sizes provided by the recipe. Our nutrient ratings are based on a single serving. For example, if a recipe makes 4 servings, you would be receiving the nutrient amounts listed in the chart by eating 1/4th of the combined ingredients found in the recipe. Now, returning to the chart itself, you can look next to the nutrient name in order to find the nutrient amount it offers, the percent Daily Value (DV%) that this amount represents, the nutrient density that we calculated for this recipe and nutrient, and the rating we established in our rating system. For most of our nutrient ratings, we adopted the government standards for food labeling that are found in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's "Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling."
