    Lemony Chicken Thighs, which taste divine.

    Don't you just love chicken thighs with their skins on ? Well I do !

    Take some simple, inexpensive chicken thighs. Add a taste of lemon, which makes the skin taste oh so crispy and melt-in-your-mouth good... and you have a great tasting meal. Buy thighs with the bone-in and the skin ON, I do - although you could have them bone removed if preferred !

    Lemony Chicken Thighs
    (serves 4-6)

    Juice of 2 lemons
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 tablespoon sea salt
    10-12 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
    Salt and Pepper for seasoning

    Method
    1. Mix the juice of 2 lemons, olive oil, and salt in a large bowl.
    2. Toss chicken thighs in the liquid to coat, and marinate for 1-6 hours in the fridge, bringing chicken to room temperature for the last 30 minutes.
    3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    4. Remove thighs from the marinade and place them skin-side up in a roasting pan or Pyrex dish. Roast for 45 minutes.
    5. Cut into thigh to check meat is fully cooked. Clear juices should run from the piercing spot, or the temperature on a meat thermometer should read 175-180. If not done, pop back in oven for 5 minutes.
    6. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Finish with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

    Now what would you serve these lovely lemony chicken thighs with?
    Green Beans, Cauliflower, Broccoli ... the choice is yours.

    My thanks to Anna for the original recipe idea - see her blog here : http://glutenfreeanna.com/

    All the best Jan

    Cheers Jan-My kinda grub and would serve with a simple green salad tossed in a dressing of extra virgin olive oil,apple cider vinegar and a pinch of salt...I like my chicken thighs roasted bone in-skin on as I find the bone gives more flavour to the meat and I just LOVE crispy chicken skin. Smile

    Cheers

    So pleased you liked the recipe - I had to look up what 'chicken maryland cut' was - and it is this.



    Your meal must have tasted great.  Smile

    Has anyone else tried the lemony recipe yet?
