Lemon Tarragon Chicken

Baked Lemon Tarragon Chicken

Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste, and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, tarragon, paprika, and parsley. Mix well. Pour 1/2 of this mixture over the chicken, and brush to cover.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Turn chicken pieces over and brush with the remaining 1/2 of the lemon mustard mixture. Bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
