Lemon-Garlic Roasted Chicken
  1. 2 split skin-on chicken breasts with ribs (about 2 lbs)
  2. 6 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
  3. 3 lemons, quartered
  4. 2 tbsp olive oil
  5. 1 tbsp fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  6. 1 tsp dried oregano
  7. Sea salt and fresh-ground black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Cut each chicken breast in half to form four servings.
  2. Squeeze the juice from 3-4 of the lemon quarters to obtain one tablespoon of lemon juice. Place lemon juice into a small bowl along with the olive oil and oregano. Combine well.
  3. On a high rimmed baking sheet, place the chicken breasts skin side up and drizzle with the olive oil mixture. Then add the garlic cloves and lemons; toss all ingredients together until well coated with the olive oil mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast chicken, skin side up, until golden and cooked through, about 25-30 minutes.
