Lemon Garlic Chicken

This is one of my families favorite meals. I love the flavor of the chicken. This recipe is from my P90X workout meal plan. We have this chicken often. I serve with wild rice and usually steamed brocolli and zuchini...this night I only had the brocolli!!!

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp molasses
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
4 garlic cloves
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
combine first 4 ingredients in a nonreactive dish and add chicken. cover and marinate in fridge for 1 hour, turning occassionally.preheat oven to 425 degreesremove chicken from dish, reserving marinade and arrange in shallow roasting pan coated with cooking spray. pour reserved marinade over chicken, sprinkle with salt and pepper. bake for 20 minutes, basting occasionally with marinade. continue baking, without basting, for an additional 20 minutes or until chicken is done...serve with lemon wedges and garnish with parsley if desired
Workouts have been good. I've been running, on the treadmill, but still running!!! I have found that I sure get bored on the treadmill though...and really FAST too!!! It just isn't the same as running outside, but hey, I'll take what I can get!! Last week I wasn't in the mood for strength training...I don't know why!!! So this week, I'm back on the band wagon and todays workout was a BEAR!!! Chest, Shoulders and word...YIKES!!!! But it sure felt good. I'm definitely feeling it already though!!

That looks like a nice healthy meal. I will have to try the chicken when it gets cooler, we try not to turn on the oven in the summer, limits my options though.
