Citrus-Garlic Roasted Chicken


PAIRS WITH 


Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and put a rack on a rimmed baking sheet.

Put orange and lime zest in a small bowl and add the fruit juices. Whisk in olive oil, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and a generous grind of black pepper. Place chicken in a large bowl and pour marinade over chicken until well coated. Marinate for 20-30 minutes.

With tongs, remove chicken from marinade and arrange chicken pieces on wire rack with space between each piece. Drizzle a small spoonful of marinade over the top of each piece and season well with salt and pepper.

Roast until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear when pierced with a knife, about 45 minutes.

Transfer chicken to a serving platter. Cool slightly before serving.

Garnish with lemon slices and serve with oven fries.
