Chicken thighs with lemon

What I love is how simple this dish is. It also goes with so many other things. We have made these for BBQs, parties and pot luck dinners. They go great with big salads, in creamy pastas like this creme fraiche delicious recipe. If you are wanting to do this on a BBQ then you can leave this to marinade for a while in the fridge and then cook on the BBQ how you like best. When I cook this I tend to keep it on a tray so it keeps it together and then easier to serve.

Oven Roasted chicken thighs

Oven roasted chicken thighs is an easy to cook chicken thighs. They tend to go really succulent especially when you cook it with the skin on. To stop them sticking to the bottom of the tray you can add a few slices of onion or celery. It helps keep them raised and also helps make a great gravy if you want a gravy. The fats will drip out and the vegetables can help build up a stock.

Tasty lemon chicken

Lemon as a flavour works so well with chicken. Chicken is a great meat that is subtle enough to absorb flavours it is cooked with. It makes it a super versatile ingredient. To make tasty lemon chicken you can do as the recipe says and look it with of lemons. You can cut up lemons and mix it with garlic (include the zest) and add some under each chicken skin. As they cook the lemon taste will absorb through.
