Citrus Herb Roasted Chicken

This time of year, it seems like we are usually in need of a tasty entree to take to an event or are hosting others at our dinner table. The task of creating a menu or choosing an entree large enough to feed a group of people can be daunting. I found this Citrus Herb Roasted Chicken recipe and knew I had to recreate it! The recipe is simple and perfect for a large group, as you can easily adjust the amount of chicken you are cooking. But, even for just two people, the recipe is an easy meal to make. One of the best parts is that you can make enough to have lunch or dinner leftovers for later on! It was a hit in our home, and I’m excited to share it with our HBH readers.

If time allows, create the olive oil mixture ahead of time so you can marinate your chicken with it. Whisk together the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, orange juice, Italian seasoning (or poultry seasoning), onion powder, red pepper flakes, Kosher salt and pepper to taste.

Rinse and pat dry your chicken pieces. Place in a Ziploc bag and pour the olive oil mixture on top. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

While the chicken is marinating, prepare the other ingredients for the chicken. Slice the onion, lemon, and orange and chop the fresh herbs.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scatter a few pieces of sliced onion, lemon and orange in a 9×13 pan and then lay the marinated chicken pieces on top. Arrange the rest of the sliced onion, lemon and orange in the pan surrounding the chicken. Pour the leftover chicken marinade in the Ziploc bag all over the chicken. Top with chopped herbs and add salt and pepper to taste.

Bake uncovered for about 45 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Serve with additional herbs as desired. Enjoy!
