Spicy Lemon Garlic and Coriander Chicken

I have been eating lots of roast chicken lately. I always throw in some veggies in the roasting pan. The main ingredients here are lemon, garlic, coriander and honey. Sounds good doesn’t it? Today is a bright sunny day. The sun is fully out. Enjoy the rest of the week!

Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.

Drizzle ⅔ of the marinade over the chicken, on both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours.

Bake at 375°F (190ºC) for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until fully cooked.

  1. This looks amazing! I’m going to try it this weekend. I also LOVE how you serrated the chicken to allow for the marinade to soak in. I’d never seen that before! Great idea!
