Sometimes we forget how much we love marinades and what great flavor they add to a dish. Take for example this simple chicken dish that we marinated in garlic infused olive oil, lemon slices and herbs. The best part? It comes together in 30 minutes!
chicken thighs (we used about eight boneless, skinless)
1/3 cup of olive oil
seven garlic cloves, smashed
half a head of flat leaf parsley, chopped
one lemon sliced into thin strips
2-3 sprigs of thyme
1. Make the garlic infused olive oil but heating the olive oil and garlic cloves in a small saucepan on low heat. Let simmer for 10 minutes, remove from burner and let cool.
2. Mix all ingredients including the garlic infused olive oil in a ziplock bag and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
3. Place contents of the bag onto a foil lined baking sheet and roast at 450 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until done.
Our Editorial Director loved this simple chicken dish, which she served with rice and brussel sprouts (you can roast your veggies at the same time as the chicken) . Is there anything you would add, subtract or change to this recipe? Tell us in the comment section below!
