Lemon Rosemary Roasted Chicken

Adapted from [Simply Recipes|http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/lemon_chicken/]

Yields: 4-6 servings



In a bowl, whisk together lemon zest, juice, garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Place chicken pieces in a plastic zipper bag and pour marinade over. Toss to coat thoroughly. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Place oven rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 425. Line a baking sheet with foil or silicone baking mat and place a cooling rack on top of that.

Remove chicken pieces from the bag, reserving the marinade, and place in a single layer, skin side up, on the cooling rack. Brush each piece of chicken with melted butter.

Bake for a total of 50 to 55 minutes, or until the skins are crispy brown, and the chicken is cooked through, juices running clear. Half-way through baking baste the chicken pieces generously with reserved marinade.

Garnish with lemon and fresh rosemary.
