2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Lemon Herb Sauce:
1 clove garlic, peeled
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/3 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
For the Chicken: Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F.
For the sauce: smash the garlic clove, sprinkle with the salt, and with the side of a large knife, mash and smear the mixture to a coarse paste. Transfer to a blender with the parsley, mint, pepper, lemon zest, and juice. Pulse until coarsely chopped and then slowly drizzle in the olive oil. Pour into a small bowl and adjust seasoning. Deglaze pan with the sauce, if desired, and serve with the chicken.
