Baked Lemon-Garlic Chicken (& fitmixer Holiday Promotions)

Last night’s dinner was de-lic-ious! And it was SO easy to make! Ok, well, everything you see on CNC is easy to make, but this recipe was especially easy. And delicious! Did I say that already? Ok, you really should just make it!  😉


  • 3 chicken breasts (~1.5 lbs)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp minced cilantro



Combine all ingredients in a large Tupperware container or plastic bag and mix/shake to coat chicken.


Allow to marinate 3-4 hours.


Bake on 375 degrees F for approximately 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked all the way through. Enjoy!


I served the chicken with roasted broccoli and brown rice last night. Fabulous dinner. The chicken had strong flavors of both lemon and garlic. Mmm!


I ate dinner pretty early in the evening, so I ended up getting hungry right before bed and snacked on some peanuts.

Question of the Day

What’s your favorite chicken recipe? Please feel free to share links!

P.S. I recently read about a neat organization called Medals4Mettle that distributes earned marathon, half marathon, and triathlon medals to people fighting debilitating illnesses. What a great idea, right? Now I’m seriously thinking about donating a bunch of my race medals.


  1. This is fantastic! I need more quick & tasty chicken recipes for when school resumes in a couple weeks.

    I like to dip chicken in buttermilk and then roll in a mixture of parmesan, italian seasoning, and chopped pecans. It’s fantastic.

  2. Ooh! I might just have to try that this week. Sounds delish. Also, sounds like an easy way to marinate chicken in an assortment of toppings.

    I made these chicken roll ups back in college from a WW Take Out Cookbook, and they would’ve been better had I gotten the chicken cutlets hammered out a lot flatter, but they were still tasty. Chicken, a strong italian cheese of choice (I think provolone?) and pancetta. Soooo yummy!

  3. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Since my Crohn’s flare and trying to eat differently, I’m sort of at a loss for making meals. I’m not much of a cook to start with, and all the healthy things I used to make (example, black bean burritos) have to be replaced with lower fiber, lower fat options. It’s my turn to cook soon and this may just end up on the plate! If I try it, I’ll post back to let you know how it turns out. Thanks again. 🙂 – M

  4. I’m registered for bootcamp! Getting nervous/excited to start since I found out that I’ll be travelling internationally right when it starts – it will be a good change to my typical run/yoga/weights routine though.

  5. That recipe looks amazing! I think I’ll add it to the dinner menu next week.

    I’m doing the fitmixer bootcamp too and it would be a lot of fun if you did something here too to help with motivation and encouragement. You can never have too much support!

  6. I’m signed up for the boot camp! I tried to get my friends to sign up but no luck. Some extra motivation would be awesome!

  8. Have been thinking about signing up for a boot camp, with the $25 off tomorrow that may seal the deal for me. What I great way to kick off 2013! Would be great to have motivation from CnC as I check your blog daily for healthy food ideas and motivation.
