The Easiest Baked Lemon Chicken

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic 6 – 9 cloves
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest from 1 or 2 lemons
  • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 8 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs OR 4 boneless skin-on chicken breasts

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Prepare the sauce. Gently heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the minced garlic and heat until tender but not browned about 1 minute. Add the wine lemon zest and lemon juice oregano thyme salt and pepper and stir.
  3. Remove from heat and pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
  4. Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Place skin side up in the dish. Spoon some of the sauce over top to coat completely.
  5. Slice the lemon and tuck it in skin side down (otherwise it will scorch) between the chicken pieces.
