Roasted Lemon Chicken
One of our favourite chicken dishes is our Roasted Lemon Chicken. It's so easy to prepare, we prefer to use chicken thighs for this dish as they turn out super soft, moist and delicious. From time to time we'll add some chicken breasts or even legs to the mix! Chicken breasts tend to dry out though so we don't recommend baking them the full time in the recipe; we're careful to over cook them and use a thermometer; when the internal temperature reaches 165F ~dinner is done.
Chicken being so versatile it pairs perfectly with oven roasted potatoes, steamed fresh veggies and a nice garden salad as we have pictured above. Try it served on top of a spinach salad or even some sautéed greens. The possibilities are endless.
