CITRUS HERB ROAST CHICKEN
I love a good chicken recipe, but I’m all for it being effortless. On the days when my plate is full I make meals as simple as possible and one of my go to recipes would be this simple marinade which I use on pork or chicken. I will usually marinate the chicken the night before in the fridge, so all I have to do the next day is toss it in a pan and roast it. It doesn’t get easier than that! I love the freshness of the herbs and the citrus flavors brighten the dish. This is definitely a winner, winner, chicken dinner. Corny, I know.
Roast Chicken with a Citrus Herb Marinade
8 leg and thigh pieces
½ cup orange juice
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp crushed garlic
¼ tsp cumin
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp red pepper flakes
2 1/2 tsp salt
¼ cup cilantro
½ tsp dried oregano
Place all ingredients in a large resealable bag and refrigerate overnight. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove chicken from the marinade and place on a baking pan; discard the marinade. Place in preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown.
This marinade for chicken looks delicious and summery! I will definitely be giving this a try. Your pictures also look amazing.
Thanks Coley, it is perfect for summer, I love how light and bright the flavors are.
I love a good citrus and herb marinade too and definitely will have to try this recipe out. Looks and sounds so flavoursome.

Could you use chicken breast for the recipe? And if so, should you bake it in the marinade for a juicy breast?
Reduce the cooking time or it will be dry.
MADE this last night, very very good and juicy. I can’t wait to try on pork chops.
Cooked for 55 min and temp was good. Added Pam to top of skin which makes it come out crispy on top. Really great!
