~ Lemon Chicken With Roasted Garlic ~
* 8 skinless boneless chicken thighs, washed and patted dry
* 1/3 cup lemon juice
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* 10-15 whole peeled garlic cloves
* 1/2 cup chicken broth
* 1 Tbsp dried oregano
* Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place the garlic in a roasting pan.
Lay the chicken thighs over the garlic cloves.
Top the chicken with the remaining ingredients and season well with salt and pepper. Roast in 400 degree oven, turning occasionally until the chicken is golden and most of the broth/juice has evaporated, leaving only olive oil in the pan.
Remove the chicken and garlic cloves from the pan leaving the olive oil behind. Serve the chicken garnished with the whole roasted garlic cloves and additional lemon wedges.
Notes: The chicken in this dish is succulent and the garlic is soft, mild and delicious.
