Lemon Herb Chicken

"I don't like this chicken.  It's nasty!"  This is a direct quote from my sweet little 3-year-old.  Kids say the funniest things.  :)  This is what she told me when I placed her plate in front of her and by the end of the meal she had changed her mind.  "Mama, I love this chicken!"  Now, that's more like it.  This is another winning recipe from my Light & Delish magazine.  

Lemon Herb Chicken
3 lbs. cut up chicken
2 lemons
1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 c. fresh oregano, chopped
1 T. olive oil
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 450º.  From lemons, grate 1 T. peel and squeeze 3 T. juice.  In large bowl combine lemon peel, lemon juice, oregano, parsley, olive oil, 1 t. salt, 1/4 t. pepper.  Add chicken, toss to coat.  Place chicken in foil-lined jelly roll pan.  Bake chicken at 450º, without turning, for 35 minutes or until juice run clear.  Enjoy!
