Roasted Chicken Quarters

Diana Rattray
The combination of lemon and herbs, along with loads of garlic, help make this easy baked chicken extra-flavorful. It's a great dish to serve for an everyday family meal, or make it for Sunday dinner.

Ingredients:

  • Juice of 2 lemons, about 5 to 6 tablespoons
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 chicken, about 3 1/2 to 4 pounds, quartered*
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • Salt

Preparation:

Heat oven to 375°.

Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, herbs, seasoning, and garlic.

Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Toss the chicken with the first mixture; arrange in a roasting pan. Bake for about 1 1/2 hours, turning about halfway through. When chicken is thoroughly cooked, juices will run clear when pierced with a fork.
Serves 4.
