Lemon Ginger Chicken (via Snixy Kitchen)
- 4 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs (or 6 drumsticks)
- juice of 2 lemons
- zest of two lemons
- inch of fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat the oven to 425ºF.
- Marinate the chicken skin side up in the lemon juice for about 10 minutes (no longer or your chicken will get soggy).
- Mash together the zest, salt, pepper, and ginger in a small bowl.
- Transfer the chicken to a parchment-lined baking pan, skin side up.
- Divide the zest and ginger mixture among the four thighs, patting it onto the skin side only.
- Roast the chicken for 35-45 minutes, until a meat thermometer stuck in the thickest part reads 165ºF.
