Roast Lemon Chicken for Two
To get maximum lemon flavor into a quick dinner for two, we gave bone-in breasts a double dose of zest and juice.
Why This Recipe Works
By using bone-in chicken breasts, we help the meat retain juiciness and promote more even cooking. For maximum seasoning and lemon flavor we rub a mixture of lemon zest, minced parsley, and salt underneath the skin and let it sit for 30 minutes. Searing the breasts skin side down quickly crisps the skin and once flipped, they finish cooking in the even heat of the oven. A quick pan sauce of chicken broth, lemon juice, herbs, and butter bumps up the flavor even more.
