Isn’t that picture mouth-watering? Roasted lemon and herb chicken is a great way to use chicken thighs and to bring terrific flavor to the table. Easy to make, this recipe requires fragrant and yummy ingredients like lemon, garlic, bacon fat (hello!), and spices. The lemon juice and herbs make a lovely combination of fresh and fragrant. We bet you’ll want to add this to your weekly meal rotation!
“This recipe has quickly become one of my family favorites because it is paleo budget friendly and because it is easy to make. The only tricky part is that you must stir the chicken fairly frequently in the pan to make sure the skin doesn’t stick. Other than that, it is pretty hard to mess this one up, and it’s a one-pot recipe, which makes it even better!
Chicken thighs are a great protein source and they are also usually less expensive than other cuts of meat. I find that they freeze and defrost well, so whenever I see them on sale I grab a few packages at a time. Leaving the skin on in this recipe allows the outside to get crispy, while the inside stays moist and juicy. The combination of the lemon juice and herbs makes for a tasty but not overpowering sauce.
This recipe goes great with a simple side-salad with Italian Dressing or some Crispy Brussel Sprouts. The sauce and chicken also tastes great over some simple zucchini noodles made with a spiral slicer and sauteed in some ghee or olive oil.”
