Easy Lemon Garlic Chicken Bake Recipe made baked chicken thighs in the oven

The lemon and the garlic play huge roles in making this lemon garlic chicken so incredibly flavorful and delicious.

When it comes to chicken recipes, I’m a firm believer that less is more, I mean I really don’t like to spend a lot of time cooking it (because chances are I’m planning to make it on a weeknight) and also because I really believe when you have good quality ingredients, you don’ really need a ton of things, you just need a couple of them and have a wow-worthy meal in no time.

I also really like to use things that are already in my pantry and kitchen, so those high-quality things need to be ingredients that I really use a ton of times and love to have around.

This lemon garlic chicken has all those things. It only uses ingredients that I have around and only a few of them. The result is way beyond delicious and incredibly tender. It’s citrus without being overpowering and it’s garlicky without being bitter. Also, the garlic and the lemon go together amazingly well.

I like to cook it in the oven and let it slowly roast in there. In my opinion, that’s what helps to build up the flavors so much and create an incredibly juicy and flavorful chicken breast.

Once it’s done I love to serve it with a couple of lemon triangles on top because, honestly, they look too cute to not add them.
