Lemon Chicken

My oldest absolutely loves "chicken on the bone" as he says.  I bought some chicken thighs and threw them in the freezer and finally decided to try out this recipe. Everyone devoured the chicken and next time I will have to make more!

3-4 lbs bone in skin on chicken thighs
4 tsp lemon zest
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp rosemary
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
4 tsp melted butter
2 lemons cut into wedges

Whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. Place the chicken in a bag and pour the marinade over top then place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Heat the oven to 425. Place the chicken in a baking dish then brush with melted butter. Set the extra marinade to the side.  Cook in the oven for 20 minutes then remove and baste with the marinade. Place back in the oven for 20-25 more minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the skin has started to brown. Remove from oven and serve.
