  • 8 chicken thighs
  • ⅓ C lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • ½ tsp dry rosemary
  • ½ tsp dry thyme
  • ½ tsp dry crushed red pepper (optional)
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ⅛ C extra virgin olive oil
  1. Preheat your oven to 350º F. Rinse off your chicken thighs, remove the skins, and place them into an oven-safe dish. To remove the skin simply place your thumb between the meat and the skin and pull.
  2. Mix all your ingredients in a bowl, evenly spread your marinade over your chicken thighs, and then cover your pan with foil.
  3. Bake covered for 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165º F. Once cooked, allow the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
