But before I get into the recipe, I NEED to tell you about Luke’s Local– a grocery store in Cole Valley that delivers to your door within 2 hours.

If you guys haven’t heard of Lukes Local, they’re big believers in sourcing quality ingredients from local, organic farms, and all their meals + sides are made in-house by professional chefs.
Now back to this lemon garlic chicken recipe.
I put together a little seasoning blend with items that you probably already have in your kitchen. It’s nothing special, but when you put it all together with the right chicken… *drools*
For chicken, I used Mary’s Chicken thighs (with skin) so that the top would get extra crisp while the inside remained juicy and tender.
Alright, let’s get into it.
Here’s what you need
2 lbs chicken thighs (about 5-6 pieces)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Brush or spray baking sheet with olive oil.
Pat your chicken dry with paper towels. Then put the chicken on your baking sheet and rub olive oil on each piece of chicken.
In a separate bowl:
Squeeze half a lemon
Mince 2-3 garlic cloves
Add salt, pepper, basil, oregano and red pepper flakes.
Drizzle the seasoning mixture over each chicken thigh
Add thin lemon slices to the top of each thigh
Take the remaining garlic + lemon slices, and add to baking sheet.
Roast for 40 minutes or until chicken is ready (meat should not be pink).
For a finishing touch, add fresh oregano on top.
I’m literally patting myself on the back for this one.
