Lemon & honey chicken Recipe
  • 4 to 5 pounds chicken parts
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

How to make Lemon & honey chicken:

  • Wash chicken parts and pat dry. Arrange the chicken in single layer in a large shallow dish.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together lemon peel, lemon juice, garlic, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Spoon lemon mixture over chicken; refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours, turning several times to coat well.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and drain well, reserving marinade. Arrange chicken in a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Brush with melted butter. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes. Brush some of the reserved marinade on the chicken and bake for about 30 minutes longer, basting several times. Chicken should be browned and cooked through.
  • Garnish chicken with lemon slices and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Boil remaining marinade for 1 minute and spoon a little over the chicken just before serving, or serve separately. Serve with hot cooked rice or noodles.
