Lemon Garlic Basil Chicken

- 2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
- 3 Teaspoon Fresh Basil
- 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

- Mince the garlic clove. Combine the garlic, olive oil, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, basil, and sea salt in a bowl. Place the chicken breasts in the same bowl and let marinate for 10–15 minutes if desired.
