Super Simple Lemon-Garlic Chicken Recipe

Lemon garlic and pepper chicken recipe, paleo chicken recipeLemon, garlic and black pepper is a classic flavor combination that has been a fail-safe since it was discovered way back when. As time has crept on, there have been  hundreds of variations built on this classic base, but there is nothing wrong with kicking it old school and using this flavor profile as it was originally intended — being simple isn’t a bad thing.

This chicken dish showcases the original flavors perfectly. It’s cooked on top of the garlic and lemons in the pan, giving it maximum flavor. I usually pair this over a simple veggie dish, some cauliflower rice or a nice salad. Enjoy!
