We saw this recipe in a social media post from our friend and holistic health practitioner Pam Langenderfer of Lakeside Holistic Health in Coeur d’ Alene.  We adapted it to our taste, and we highly recommend you try it.  Delicious and easy to prepare, you probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry already.

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in, skin-on chicken leg quarters from Ramstead Ranch
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Juice from 2 lemons
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemons to garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  2. In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, lemon juice, thyme, rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  3. Place the chicken in a baking dish and pour the lemon herb mixture over them, making sure to coat each piece evenly.
  4. Bake in preheated oven 30-35 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the skin is crispy and golden brown.  We recommend using a meat thermometer and target an internal temperature of 155°F
  5. Serve with your favorite side dishes and devour!
