Garlic Lemon Chicken



4 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts
3 tablespoons roasted garlic
zest and juice of 2 lemons
2 tablespoons melted butter
salt and cracked black pepper
1 lemon, sliced
1 cup white wine



  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Rinse the chicken breasts and pat dry. In a small bowl, make a paste with the garlic, lemon zest, half of the lemon juice, butter, salt and pepper. Carefully separate the chicken skin from the breasts and spread the paste under the skin.
  3. Place the chicken breasts skin side up in a 9×13 baking dish. Arrange the lemon slices on top of the chicken breasts. Pour the wine and remaining lemon juice into the bottom of the dish.
  4. Cover with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
  5. Uncover the pan, increase heat to 425, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes on the top rack to brown and crisp the skin.
