This chicken is very juicy and garlic-y, while the lemon is subtle. An adaptation of a Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger recipe. Does not include time if you want to let it marinate.
- Combine oil, garlic, lemon zest and juice. Coat chicken with this, plus grind a few turns of pepper over it. At this point you can let it marinate up to a day or cook it right away (I like to let it marinate). When ready for baking, sprinkle a little salt over the chicken.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Roast chicken for 20 minutes, then add the fresh herbs. Cook for about 25 more minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. If you use bone-in chicken breasts, you will need to increase the cooking time.
I loved it!! Wonderful, has already seen to repeats! I am very fond of Tuscun dishes and this one is really good.A delightful and delicious meal to serve family and friends. Used sage along with a little rosemary and thyme. Awesome flavour. The recipe has been added to my Family Favourites.
Wow. This was the best, juiciest baked chicken I have ever had. It tasted almost like rotisserie chicken. I omitted the lemon zest (since I didn't have any); and, instead of adding fresh herbs in the middle of cooking, I just sprinkled on some Mrs. Dash along with the salt and pepper. I will definitely be keeping this one and showing it off to my friends and family. Thanks!
Lovely light marinade with a touch of zest from the garlic. I prepared this with bone in breasts and roasted for 45 minutes (20 at 400 degrees; the remaining at 375) and found the poultry was cooked perfectly. Since my marinating time was rather brief, I used a full tablespoon of lemon and added Greek oregano during the final cooking time. For bone in I would suggest including the herbs for the entire cooking time for the flavors to permeate more. Thanks!
