Lemon Garlic Chicken

Incredibly easy to prepare and finger licking tasty, these lemon garlic chicken pieces are perfect when you need to rustle together something for dinner without having to shop for a hundred and one ingredients first.

Lemons have a high level of acidity and marinading the chicken in the juice helps to tenderise and 'cook' the chicken in advance.

Quantities listed are roughly for two people but it's dependent on your appetite and the size of the chicken pieces you purchase.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes marinade 20 minute cooking
Makes: 2 servings

2-4 chicken drumsticks
2 - 4 chicken thighs
1 lemon
4 cloves garlic
Salt and pepper

Squeeze a lemon and pour juice over the chicken pieces
Crush garlic and rub over the chicken
Turn chicken pieces over and mix well with the marinade
Leave for 15 - 20 minutes to marinade
Place chicken pieces on a wire rack in a roasting tin
Grind some black pepper over and sprinkle with salt (sea salt is great for this but normal salt is ok too)
Place in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes or until fully cooked (this will depend on the sizes of your chicken pieces)

Thighs & Drumsticks have lots of flavour

I'm guessing that the chicken would also be great on a BBQ. If you try it and it's good, let me know in the comments.

The chicken is great served with a sweet potato mash on the side. Succulent chicken with a crisp skin full of flavour.
