This healthy chicken recipe is DELISH, and a hit with everyone at our house. It's easy, too! I served it with sauteed zucchini and brown rice steamed in low-sodium chicken broth.
(The P90X fitness program is where I found this recipe.)
Start with a few basic ingredients:
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp molasses
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
4 garlic cloves, chopped
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
- Combine first 4 ingredients in a nonreactive dish and add chicken. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning occasionally.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Remove chicken from dish, reserving marinade, and arrange in a shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Pour reserved marinade over chicken, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes, basting occasionally with marinade. Bake without basting for 20 minutes more or until chicken is done. Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with parsley, if desired.
