I made this chicken last night, it was SO, SO easy and a recipe I think everyone needs in their back pocket.
You can make this with bone-in or boneless breasts, you could add some thighs and legs to make it more of a full meal for more people but it was just the 4 of us so I used the breasts. I personally think bone-in is always tastier but sometimes boneless is easier. For this recipe, place all of the chicken in a ziploc bag. Add the juice of one or two lemons, 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of salt, a whole bunch of rosemary (like 6-7 sprigs) and fresh pepper.
Let them marinate in the bag for as long as you have, if you could do it all day that would be great but even if it’s just 10 minutes you’ll still reap the benefits!
When you’re ready to cook, place them in a casserole, add another sprinkle of salt and pepper on both sides and cook them at 375 for 30 minutes. I took them out, checked to see if they were cooked through with a fork and knife, they were, and then I put the oven on broil to crisp up the skin. I broiled them for about 3-4 minutes and took them out.
I served them with white rice and peas and it was a hit for the whole family! SO easy and perfect for a weeknight.
I’ll be back on Monday with our California recap! xoxox, Liz
