Ingredients
  

  • 2 whole lemons
  • 1 c extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 c onion, diced
  • 1/4 c fresh basil leaves
  • 1 Tb fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1 Tb fresh thyme, minced
  • 1 Tb fresh oregano, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2/3 c jarred sun-dried tomatoes, drained and diced
  • 3 or 4 bone-in chicken breasts, skin removed

Instructions
 

The Day Before

  • To begin, zest and juice one of the lemons, putting the juice and zest in a sauce pan.
  • Add the oil, onion, basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano, fennel seed, salt, pepper and garlic.
  • Heat this over medium heat and cook for about 2 minutes or until the onions are slightly translucent.
  • Stir in the tomatoes and allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.
  • Place your chicken breasts inside a large zip-lock storage bag.
  • Pour the cooled marinade into the bag, press out the air and seal the bag shut. "Squish" the bag around to completely coat the chicken and place the bag inside a dish, in case of leaks.
  • Place the dish in your refrigerator and marinate overnight.

To Prepare the Chicken:

  • When you are ready to cook the chicken, heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Arrange the chicken in a roasting pan, pouring the marinade over the top.
  • Cut the remaining lemon into slices and lay the lemon slices on top of the chicken.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked. Using a meat thermometer, the chicken should read 165 degrees.
  • Allow the chicken to rest 5 minutes before serving.
  • Enjoy!
