RECIPE: Citrus chicken

I wanted to try something different with chicken because usually we have either breaded chicken or BBQ chicken.

What you will need:

1 whole chicken

1 Lemon zest and juice

1 tbsp Paprika

1/4 tsp Salt and Pepper

Now let’s get started:

Preheat oven to 400F

Zest both lemon and orange and put the zest in a bowl.

Now put the chicken in to 400F oven for 1hr 20 minutes.  Every 30 minutes, baste the chicken with the liquid from the orange/lemon in the dish.

All done and ready to eat.  The chicken is so delicious and super moist.  Yummy!
