Juicy Chicken Tip
The secret to achieving juicy baked chicken breast is to cook it at a high temperature, blasting it with heat over a short period of time. But don’t worry, you can ensure you’re cooking it to perfection by using a meat thermometer for 100% accuracy. This way, you’ll avoid the risk of over-baking and drying out the chicken.
Not a fan of chicken breast? No problem! This recipe works just as well with chicken thighs and drumsticks. The cooking time may vary slightly, so keep an eye on the internal temperature, which should reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit for safe consumption.
Boost the Flavor with Lemon Slices
Not only do the lemons add amazing flavor to the chicken, but they also taste incredible themselves. Give them a try and fall in love with the intense lemony goodness!
Make Ahead Instructions
Want to save even more time? You can make the marinade up to 8 hours ahead. Simply prepare it in the morning and let the chicken marinate all day. Then, when it’s time to cook, just pop it into the oven and let it work its magic.
Storage and Reheating Instructions
Have leftovers? No worries! Store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. When you’re ready to enjoy them again, simply reheat in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit until warmed through.
