Lemon Garlic Chicken

I have been in New York all week on business travel.  I had never been to New York before but I can tell you the food was just out of this world!  I ate at a lot of French cafes and had food with a lot of French flare and it was just amazing!! I got home yesterday, so I am just now getting an opportunity to post a new recipe! 

I found this recipe on Big Oven and it's full of flavor.  I had this chicken dish with a side of rice and balsamic Green beans with almonds (that recipes is here on my blog).  It left us full but not feeling heavy.  It is a very light dinner, full of flavor and very healthy! 

I use chicken thighs with this recipe but let me tell you up front - this one takes a little bit of time.  It's simple to make but you need to let the chicken marinate for 20 minutes and then the thighs need to cook for 45 minutes.  But it's well worth the wait.  Definitely serve this one with rice or even a side of mashed potatoes.  It's Gluten free (ensure you use a Gluten Free soy sauce) and dairy free! 

I hope ya'll enjoy!!


10 to 12 Boneless and Skinless Chicken Thighs
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
1 tsp Oregano
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Soy Sauce (Use a Gluten Free for those not eating Gluten)


Soak the chicken pieces in salted water for 20 minutes (or just rinse if you're in a hurry), then pat the pieces dry and lay them in a baking dish.  They should be a bit crowded, touching each other.

Mix up the rest of the ingredients and pour over the chicken, then let stand for 20 minutes.  Bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes.  Serve immediately.
