Ingredients


- 4 chicken breasts
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Juice of 2 lemons
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon paprika

Instructions


1. In a mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, chopped parsley, and paprika. Mix well.
2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Ensure each breast is evenly coated. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours for maximum flavor.

4. Cook the chicken for 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through and golden brown on the outside. The internal temperature should reach 165°F (74°C).
5. Remove the chicken from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon wedges, if desired.
