Recipe: Easy & Quick Lemon Thyme Chicken

Typically I don’t buy fresh herbs as they go bad before I get to use them, and they usually aren’t cheap. But I got lucky and found a nice selection of some on clearance at the local gourmet grocery store (thank you Christmas!) so I decided to use them up in some creative ways. This was delicious and really had a nice depth to it from the herbs.


2 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 sprig fresh tarragon, or about 1 tsp dried, chopped fine
2 sprigs fresh thyme or about 1 tbsp dried, chopped fine
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 chicken legs & thighs

Mix ingredients together and coat each chicken piece throughly. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 400 F for 30 to 45 minutes.
