This chicken is tender and moist with just the right amount of sweetness, and there’s crispy skin too!
I believe if you make this chicken recipe, it will be a hit with your family and friends. The chicken marinates in a mixture of lemon juice, honey, garlic, paprika and oregano that compliments the chicken perfectly and helps to tenderize the chicken.
This can be thrown together quickly and is simply delicious!
Marinated Chicken with Lemon and Honey
3 tablespoons honey
¼ cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
3 teaspoons garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano
½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon salt and pepper
4 bone-in chicken breast halves, skin on
In a medium bowl, whisk together all ingredients, except the chicken.
Place chicken breasts in a glass dish, in a single layer and add the marinade.
Marinate for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours in the refrigerator, turning the chicken occasionally.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place chicken on a baking sheet and bake until cooked through and juices run clear, about 30 minutes.
