Baked Garlic-Lime Chicken Breasts

No recipe image available.After taking a nice long soak in a marinade of fresh lime juice, olive oil and garlic, these chicken breasts are baked until done, then placed under the broiler to crisp up the skin.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
8 to 10 garlic cloves, finely minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
8 chicken bone-in breast halves

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a large zip-lock style plastic bag, combine lime juice, oil, and garlic; season generously with salt and pepper. Add chicken and seal bag, removing as much air from bag as you can. Marinate chicken, turning bag over once or twice, at least 2 hours at room temperature and up to 24 hours in refrigerator.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
  3. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Arrange, skin side up, without crowding, in a shallow baking pan. Season chicken with salt and pepper and roast in upper third of oven until just cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Change oven setting to broil and broil chicken about 2 inches from heat until skin is crisp, about 2 minutes.

Makes 8 servings.
