Marinated Chicken with Lemon and Honey
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.
Marinate 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.
