How To: Make lemon garlic roasted chicken

Make lemon garlic roasted chicken

Garlic adds so much flavor to just about any dish and is a wonderful addition to combine with chicken. The one pot chef uses a plastic bag in which he throws the chicken in with a tasty garlic marinade and lemon halves before cooking.

Ingredients (serves 4)

2 large lemons

3 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tablespoons olive oil

1kg chicken nibbles (see note)

600g Pontiac potatoes, scrubbed, cut into wedges

3 sprigs rosemary, leaves removed

400g steamed green beans, to serve



Preheat oven to 200¬8C. Juice 1 lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges. Combine 1/4 cup lemon juice, garlic, oil, chicken, potatoes and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Toss to combine. Arrange in a roasting pan.

Place lemon wedges over chicken and potatoes. Sprinkle with rosemary.

Roast for 45 minutes or until chicken is golden and lemons slightly charred. Serve with steamed beans.


* If chicken nibbles (also known as drummettes) are not available, you can use 1kg chicken wings instead. Cut wings at both joints and discard wing tips.
