Recipe Ingredients for Chicken with Lemon and Garlic

800 g (4) chicken pieces
2 teaspoons thyme leaves
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
2 cloves garlic, crushed
85 g unsalted butter, softened

Recipe Directions for Chicken with Lemon and Garlic

  1. Pre-heat oven to 220C. Place the lemon rind, butter, garlic, thyme leaves, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix until combined. Set aside.

  2. Using your fingers or the back of a teaspoon, push deeply but gently between the skin and flesh of each chicken Maryland piece to separate them and form a pocket. Divide the lemon butter mixture between four chicken thighs, pushing the butter evenly down towards the drumstick. Wipe any remaining butter over the surface of the chicken skin.

  3. Place the chicken in a large baking dish lined with baking paper. Scatter a few extra thyme sprigs in the dish. Bake for 25 minutes, basting regularly until golden. Serve with steamed vegetables.
