Directions

  • 1 Season the chicken with olive oil.
  • 2 Cut one of the lemons into slices without removing the peel.

  • 5 Pour the mixture over the chicken making sure the pieces are covered in it.
  • 6 Add the fresh thyme and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • 8 Preheat the oven to 400°F.
