Lemon Jalapeño Chicken

My search for quick and easy protein elements to my lunch and dinner led me to this chicken. I need to keep on reinventing chicken with different flavors and textures otherwise I get bored.Due the recent guest in my household aka Gestational Diabetes , I have to make sure I include plenty of protein in my diet so that I maintain my blood sugar between meals.

This recipe is especially for people who appreciate subtle flavors. A simple combination of 4 ingredients lends it its beauty. It’s basically chicken breast marinated overnight in generous amounts of Jalapeños, lemon and coriander or parsley and pan fried to a juicy perfection.
