Recipe: Lemon Garlic Chicken


Lemon Garlic Chicken Recipe

Serves 3 | Prep Time: 10 Mins | Marinade Time: 30 Mins | Cook Time: 10 Mins

20 oz or 4 chicken thighs, deboned but skin on
Sliced lemon, for garnishing

3 cloves garlic, minced
2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, optional
Pinch of salt
3 dashes ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped Parsley leaves


Debone the chicken thighs but keep the skin on. If you like skinless, you may buy skinless and boneless skin thighs.

Mix all the ingredients in the Marinade in a bowl, whisk to combine well. Marinate the chicken with the Marinade, in a bowl or in a plastic bag for 30 minutes, or best for 2 hours.

Fire up the grill and grill the chicken on both sides, until it’s cooked through and the skin is charred. You may bake the chicken in an oven at 400F for about 15-20 minutes, or pan-fried on a skillet on medium to low heat. Serve the chicken warm with some lemon wedges.
