Angie's Lemon Chicken

(by Jo Gonsalves)


1⁄4 c. olive oil

splash of white wine

juice of 1 lemon

1 lb. chicken thighs, bone in, skin on

sea salt, to taste

lemon pepper, to taste

1 T. chopped Italian parsley


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Combine olive oil, white wine, and lemon juice in a bowl.

Place chicken in the mixture, making sure it is well saturated.

Place chicken pieces in a baking pan, skin side down, and sprinkle liberally on all sides with sea salt, lemon pepper, and parsley.

Bake uncovered for 50 minutes.

Turn chicken skin side up and set oven to broil

Broil on high to crisp skin for approximately 5 minutes.

Keep an eye on it at this stage, as you want to crisp the skin, not burn it.

Serve over cooked rice, couscous, or quinoa, and spoon the pan juices over it.
