Oven Baked, Lemon / Garlic Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
YIELD: 12 pieces




  • 1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare a sheet pan (jelly roll pan) by covering with aluminum foil, adding a rack, then spraying the rack with cooking spray. Don't forget to do this, or you'll end up with a MAJOR cleaning problem, or you might just end up throwing the pan away.
  • 2. Wash the chicken, dry, then place, skin side up, on the rack in the pan. Drizzle the juice of about 1/2 a lemon over the chicken. Dust with the spices, and place in the oven.
  • 3. Cook for 45 minutes, then flip the chicken over, drizzle more lemon on top, then spice again.
  • 4. Cook another 45 minutes, then flip, drizzle with lemon juice, add garlic and a little more of the blacken.
  • 5. Cook for an additional 15 minutes of so, until the skin is mice and crisp. Drizzle with lemon juice one more time as you take it out of the oven.
  • 6. Total cooking time will depend on the thickness of the chicken and the temperature.
