Lemon Garlic Chicken Recipe



Lemon Garlic Chicken Recipe

Ingredients :
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme or 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 bone-in chicken thighs
6 chicken drumsticks
1 pound baby red potatoes, halved
1 medium lemon, sliced
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, whisk the first 7 ingredients until blended. Pour 1/4 cup marinade into a large bowl or shallow dish. Add chicken and turn to coat. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
Drain chicken, discarding any remaining marinade in bowl. Place chicken in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan; add potatoes in a single layer. Drizzle reserved marinade over potatoes; top with lemon slices. Bake until a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 170°-175° and potatoes are tender, 40-45 minutes. If desired, broil chicken 3-4 inches from heat until deep golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Test Kitchen tip :
You don't have to use fresh lemon juice for this recipe, but if you do, consider zesting the lemon and garnishing each serving with a little bit for bright flavor.
