Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Make a quick marinade by mixing together the olive oil, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a bowl.
  2. Place the chicken in the quick marinade, and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  4. Place the marinated chicken on a sheet pan or cast iron skillet and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Turn up the oven to broil and cook an additional 5 minutes to brown the lemons. (DO NOT LEAVE THE OVEN WHILE IT’S ON BROIL. Keep a close eye on the chicken so it doesn’t burn.)

 

Notes

The internal temperature should be at least 165 degrees for safe eating. I highly recommend buying a meat thermometer to insure your chicken is not under or over cooked.
