Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons sugar
2 whole lemons, one juiced and one sliced
2 whole oranges, one juiced and one sliced
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
10-12 pieces (about 4 1/2 lbs.) bone-in chicken parts (thighs and legs are best), pat dry
1 medium onion (any kind), thinly sliced
1 teaspoon dried thyme, or fresh chopped
1 tablespoon dried rosemary, or fresh chopped
Chopped fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme, parsley), for garnish, optional


Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F


In small bowl whisk together olive oil, garlic, sugar, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, paprika, onion powder, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper.


Place chicken in a rimmed 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Place parts skin side up and spread them out evenly in the pan. Pour olive oil mixture all over chicken, turning pieces to coat all sides.(If you marinated the chicken in this mixture, still add it all in). Arrange slices of lemon, orange, and onion around and under the chicken. Sprinkle all over generously with thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper.


Bake uncover for about 1 hour, or until chicken is cooked and juices run clear. Remove parts to a serving platter and garnish with additional chopped fresh herbs, if desired


Enjoy!
