I made this for a friend who just gave birth to an amazingly cute baby named Miles (congrats Erin & Abe!). I’ve never made this before and I didn’t think to taste it before handing it off, so who knows if it’s any good. But in the chance that anyone else (myself included) ever wants to make it (again), here’s the recipe. I mean, it sounds really yummy?

Lemon Garlic Chicken

1 package of chicken thighs and/or drumsticks (4 thighs & 4 drumsticks)
3 lemons
15 cloves of garlic, peeled
Salt & pepper to taste
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, add the chicken pieces. Slice the lemons in half and juice them. Add the juice and the lemon rinds to the bowl, along with the garlic, salt, pepper, and thyme. Mix well with your hands, then dump this all in a large baking dish.

Put the dish in the oven and bake the chicken for 30 to 40 minutes, basting every 10 minutes. When the skin gets crispy and the meat is cooked through (165 degrees), it is done.
