Lemon Tarragon Chicken

This recipe is delicious and very quick to make. It is my go-to when I have had a long day and just need a dinner that is refreshing and healthy (lemon and extra virgin olive oil are both known for their health benefits). Leftovers are great on their own or in chicken sandwiches.

1.5 lbs boneless and skinless chicken, breast or thighs
1 lemon, juice (zest, optional)
1 tsp dried tarragon
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and black pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse the chicken and remove large pieces of fat. Place pieces in a single layer in an 8 x 8 glass baking dish (or larger if needed). Squeeze lemon over chicken and drizzle olive oil over the top. Then sprinkle the tarragon, salt and black pepper over the chicken. Bake for 20 minutes or until done.
