Who doesn’t fall off the track a little… come on, its only human.
So tonight I wanted to go back to the basics with meat and veggies. I picked up some really nice organic chicken thighs and wings and my idea was a nice heavy garlic base with a little spice for a few ingredient/ high flavor chicken marinade.
This marinade came out light but with a lot of taste. The garlic oil really sunk into the meat making the chicken extra moist and juicy and the added flavors of the lemon and jalapenos really jumped the flavoring up a notch.
Healthy and delicious... just how I like it.
Jalapeno and Garlic Marinated Chicken with Lemon
Recipe and photos by A Healthy Jalapeno
1/2 cup garlic oil with some added cloves
3 large jalapenos, thinly diced (and seeded for less heat if too spicy)
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley
2 pkg. skin on organic chicken wings
1 pkg. skin on organic chicken thighs
coarse salt and ground pepper
In large plastic container combine garlic oil and cloves, jalapenos, lemon juice, parsley and chicken. Shake to coat and refridgerate for 30 mins (or up to overnight if you are preping for the following day).
Preheat oven to 450'. Transfer garlic cloves, lemons and chicken to roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and roast until skin is golden and chicken is cooked through, about 30 to 35 minutes.
