DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Clean and trim fat from chicken, and salt and pepper each side. Place chicken in a baking dish, skin side up.
  • Loosen the skin on each piece, and place a basil leaf under the skin, directly on top of the chicken meat.
  • Toss the garlic around the chicken in the baking dish.
  • Place the lemon slices on top of each piece of chicken and drizzle with the oil.
  • Bake for 35 - 40 minutes (depending on whether it's white meat or dark meat), basting with the garlic flavored pan juices every 10 minutes. The skin should be crisp and brown and the meat tender when it's ready to serve.
