Sue's Gluten Free Lady Lemon Garlic Chicken

Sue's Gluten Free Lady Lemon Garlic ChickenThis chicken dish is so delicious and very quick and easy to prepare! It goes great with the side salad. Great Valentines dinner! Your date will love you! Oops, except for the garlic! LOL!

I found this recipe for Lemon Chicken on the Food Network.  It's a recipe from Rao's in New York that I've tweaked just a bit to our liking.  He doesn't use garlic in his but I use garlic in all my cooking so in it goes!   This dish is so delicous and easy to make!  Those who love lemon, garlic and chicken are gonna love it!

3 organic chicken leg with thigh pieces

Kosher Salt, Garlic Pepper

1 Cup good Olive Oil

Juice from 3 or 4 organic lemons (if you like it more lemony use more!) I used 3 and it’s just right for us.

3 cloves garlic minced garlic

1 / 4  cup red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon Fresh or dried Oregano

Place oven on broil. Put chicken pieces in an iron skillet, salt and pepper.  Broil for 30 minutes.  Remove chicken and cut into 2 pieces each.  Pour lemon mixture over the chicken and place back under broil for about 3 to 4 minutes (depending on your oven).  Ours is electric. I like mine crispy on the outside!
