It's so easy to spoil the ones we love; Mediterranean Poulet

My Husband’s Favorite Chicken

I really can’t think of anything other than my husband’s favorite chicken because, well… that’s exactly what it is!  Hot out of the oven, for picnics at the beach or cold right out of the fridge, he absolutely loves it!  Me?  Oh I’m crazy for anything this easy that makes me a star in the kitchen and truthfully I love spoiling Filippo!  After all, he's the BEST husband in the whole world!

Five minutes of prep in the morning is all this dish takes before it marinades until you are ready to pop it into the oven for 30-40 minutes. Then, just pull it out of the oven and serve.  Can you think of anything easier?  Let me know if you do please!

1 whole chicken cut up (about 4 pounds give or take)
1 lemon juiced, zested and cut into 8 pieces
1 long sprig fresh rosemary finely chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
½ cup olive oil

Place all ingredients into a zip lock bag or plastic container
Refrigerate until ready to use; minimum of 2 hours maximum of 24 hours
Pour everything into an oven safe baking dish (I use one that can go right to the table)
Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 30-40 minutes
Enjoy with your favorite sides.
