INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic 6 – 9 cloves
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest from 1 or 2 lemons
  • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 8 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs OR 4 boneless skin-on chicken breasts

INSTRUCTIONS
