Lemon Chicken

Last night we tried Ina Garten's Lemon Chicken. In one word....YUM!
Saturday morning was a wonderfully lazy day for C and I . We spent the entire morning reading and watching the Food Network. It happened to be "Bird is the Word" weekend, where they show all their best ways to dress up chicken. This was perfect for us, C doesn't eat red meat so I'm always looking for fresh ideas for a bland chicken.

Here's your grocery list:
1/4 c. olive oil
3 tbsp. garlic (9 cloves)
1/3c. dry white wine
1 1/2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. thyme
3 lemons
4 boneless skin-on chicken breasts
Preheat Oven to 400
Warm up olive oil  and garlic in a saucepan. Be careful not to let the garlic turn brown and burn.
Turn off the heat and add white wine, lemon zest and lemon juice (about 2 lemons) .
Add dried oreganofresh thyme leaves of course add a dash of salt and pepper
Stir it all together until the herbs are well mixed and pour into a 9 x 12 baking dish
Pat dry the chicken breasts (we used skinless this time but I think the skin would help it brown a little better) and layer them into the pan.
 Cut up one lemon into sections and tuck it near the chicken pieces to add a little extra flavor.
Bake for 30-40 minutes and the cover with tin foil for 10min.
 This chicken is full of flavor, but needs a little color on the plate so vibe it up with some green veggies and a side dish and you've got dinner on the table!

Can't wait to tell you soon about some exciting things going on in the Ulman household. I could just squeal with excitement! But I've been asked to keep it a secret for a bit longer ;) In the meantime only 3 short weeks left in Wichita Falls and "we're on  the road again!" Also really can't wait to be home in my own kitchen so these pictures will look a little clearer.
