Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme


  1. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, lemon zest, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried thyme. Mix well to create a marinade.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Make sure each chicken breast is coated evenly. Let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the marinated chicken breasts to the skillet. Cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side, or until the chicken is cooked through and golden brown.
  4. Remove the chicken from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. This will help the juices redistribute and keep the chicken moist.
  5. Serve the Lemon Pepper Chicken with your favorite side dishes, such as steamed vegetables or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
