Introduction: Citrus Chicken

About: I am a wife and a mother of two. I love reading, biking, kayaking and playing the recorder.

For this recipe you are going to need:

8 pieces of bone-in chicken

2 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp italian seasoning

1/2 tsp paprika

4 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tsp onion powder

1/4 c olive oil

1 tbsp rosemary

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1 tsp thyme leaves

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

2 oranges

2 lemons

Step 1: Score!

When scoring the chicken, instead of cutting in to the meat, leave the skin on and cut the skin in 3-4 snips. The meat will cook crispy and juicy without drying out.

Step 2: Combine (most) of the Ingredients

In a medium bowl, combine the oil and all of the seasonings EXCEPT for rosemary and thyme.

Step 3: Juicy

Add the juice of one lemon and the juice of one orange, stir until combined.

Step 4: Tis the Season(ing) of the Chicken

Pour your mixture over the chicken that is placed in a baking dish. Of course, if you have time to marinate the chicken for a few hours (or overnight) that is always the best, but it will still turn out great even if you don't.

Step 5: Thyme for Rosemary

Add the thyme and rosemary to the chicken.

Step 6: For That Other Lemon and Orange

Slice the other lemon and orange and cover the chicken completely with the slices.

Step 7: Bakin'

Place in the preheated to 400° oven and bake for an hour or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked and the juices run clear.

Step 8: Enjoy!I
