My family eats chicken for dinner at least four times a week. We love chicken quesadillas, barbecued chicken, engagement chicken, just to name a few. But our favorite chicken recipe of all is Roasted Lemon Garlic Chicken.
I’ve been making Roasted Lemon Garlic Chicken for years, and it simply couldn’t be easier or more delicious.
Roasted Lemon Garlic Chicken
2 – 3 pounds bone-in chicken (This recipe works well with any type of bone in chicken, though I typically use chicken leg quarters)
6-8 cloves of garlic
A few sprigs of fresh thyme (or dried if that’s what you have on hand)
2 -3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Cut each lemon into eight pieces and separate your garlic cloves. (Don’t worry about peeling them).
Put the lemons and garlic into your roasting pan. Add the thyme and the olive oil and stir to combine.
Add the chicken to the pan and toss it with the lemons and garlic.
Pour the chicken broth over the chicken, sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper and cover the pan tightly with foil.
Roast the chicken for about 2 hours.
After two hours, raise the heat to 400 degrees and remove the foil from the chicken. Continue roasting for about 30 minutes, until the skin has browned.
