For the Baked Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

For the Herb Butter Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon, juiced and zested


For the Baked Chicken:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Pat the chicken breasts dry with paper towels and season them generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, paprika, dried thyme, dried rosemary, and garlic powder to create a marinade.
  4. Brush the chicken breasts with the herb marinade on both sides, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  5. Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat and add a touch of olive oil. Once hot, sear the chicken breasts for 2-3 minutes on each side until they develop a golden-brown crust.
  6. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

For the Herb Butter Sauce:

  1. While the chicken is baking, prepare the herb butter sauce. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, chives, thyme, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.
  2. Zest the lemon and then juice it. Add both the lemon zest and juice to the herb butter mixture. Stir well to incorporate the flavors.

To Serve:

  1. Once the chicken is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
  2. Serve the baked chicken hot, drizzled with the prepared herb butter sauce.
  3. Garnish with extra fresh herbs or lemon slices if desired.
