Serves 4 | Prep Time 10 min | Cook Time 60 min

Ingredients

8 nice meaty chicken thighs
3 lemons
4 cloves of garlic
olive oil
salt


Pre heat oven to 400



Cut the lemons into thin slices and use them to cover the bottom of a pyrex or other baking dish big enough to hold all the chicken in one layer.



Dice the garlic



Put the chicken thighs, skin side DOWN, on top of the lemon slices.



Drizzle olive oil lightly over the thighs, lightly salt, and sprinkle the diced garlic. (If you like things spicier, add dried red pepper as well. I've also, depending on preferences, added fresh spices - rosemary in particular is a good addition)



Cover pan tightly with tin foil and put in oven for 30 minutes.



After 30 minutes, take pan out of oven, remove tin foil, turn chicken skin side UP and put back in oven for about another 30 min, or until the skin turns a lovely crisp deep brown.



Depending on what your family likes, you can serve with pasta, couscous, rice, mashed potatoes or whatever you like. For a veg, if you put broccoli drizzled with a little olive oil in the oven about 15-20 min before the chicken is finished, everything will be done at the same time.

Notes

A quick-ish, less cleanup, take on chicken piccatta. Perfect for a weekday dinner.
