This came from my friend Liz's recipe box. Few ingredients but great flavor, chicken always turns out moist. She makes extra to have leftovers for Mexican Lime Chicken Soup.

  1. Whisk together lime juice, oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Add chicken, turning to coat. Marinate chicken, covered and refrigerated, turning once or twice, for at least 2 hours and up to 8 hours.
  3. Put a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and arrange skin side up, without crowding, in a shallow baking dish.
  5. Season with salt and pepper. Roast until just cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. If chicken has a skin, turn oven to broil. Broil chicken about 2 inches from the heat until skin is crisp, about 2 minutes.
  7. Serve with lime wedges.
