This is a recipe to be repeated. The flavour is mellow & the chicken comes out tender moist. I used skinless, boneless thighs. 30 minutes in 350 oven. The onion lends flavour to the chicken and has an almost sweet taste. I used regular parsley..... Read more
- 2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
- 5 to 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons paprika (Hungarian paprika)
- 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds bone-on skin-on chicken breast (4 breasts)
- 4 tablespoons butter (pats)
- Olive oil
- Salt, pepper, garlic powder (for sprinkling)
- 4 sprigs Italian parsley
- Onion slices (4 slices sliced in thick rings)
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Cut 4 large rectangles of heavy duty aluminum foil.
Combine first 5 ingredients (this can optionally be done in a blender).
Brush the 4 large rectangles of aluminum foil with olive oil. Place chicken in center; brush with lemon/garlic mixture, then sprinkle with salt, pepper, then lightly dust with garlic powder. Place/tuck 1 pat (1 tablespoon) butter under the skin of each breast.
Place a slice of onion and a sprig of parsley over each. Fold up aluminum into a loose, square packet and crimp edges tightly to seal well. Place packets in a shallow baking dish.
Grill until cooked through (cooking time will depend on the size of each chicken piece). Or you can oven bake 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until your chicken is done.
