Sweet Lemon Chicken
1 whole chicken cut up
1 C. Olive Oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
juice of 3 large lemons (1/2 to 3/4 C)
2 Tbs. fresh oregano chopped
1/4 C. maple syrup
Clean and skin the chicken removing all visible fat and pat dry. In a
bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and oregano. In a large
skillet with a lid, place chicken in single layer and pour the oil
mixture on top. Cook covered on medium heat for about 30 minutes
basting often. Turn heat down to low and continue to cook uncovered
until the sauce is reduced to about 1/2 cup about 30 more minutes.
Remove chicken to a platter and add maple syrup to pan and stir until
heated. Pour over chicken and serve immediately. Crusty bread is
great with this to dip in the sauce. Add a salad or some fresh
veggies and its a great meal.
