INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic 6 – 9 cloves
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest from 1 or 2 lemons
  • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 8 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs OR 4 boneless skin-on chicken breasts

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Prepare the sauce. Gently heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the minced garlic and heat until tender but not browned about 1 minute. Add the wine lemon zest and lemon juice oregano thyme salt and pepper and stir.
