Easy Italian Chicken – Clean, Paleo, and Quick

Quick and Healthy Italian Lemon Chicken

As much as I enjoy cooking, I have a tendency of getting the “I don’t wanna cook” bug on busy weeknights.  We all struggle with it so here’s a recipe that couldn’t be any easier!  With only 5 ingredients and hands-off cooking in the oven, this just might become a regular in your house as it has become in ours.  Warning: if you don’t like lemon, this dish isn’t for you.  If you love lemon, you’ll LOVE this one!  Serve with quinoa or rice and don’t forget to pour some of the flavorful juice on top.
