Lemon-Broiled Chicken



  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp cayene pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, diced
  • 1 (3 lb) whole chicken
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oregano


Step 1

Make the marinade first: In a large bowl, mix lemon juice, oil, pepper, salt, oregano, and garlic.

Step 2

Cut the whole chicken into pieces with kitchen shears to separate the breast, legs, etc. Coat the cut-up chicken with the marinade.

Step 3

Marinate chicken, covered, in the refrigerator overnight.

Step 4

Broil the following day. Preheat the broiler. Place chicken skin side down on cooking sheet. Arrange the pan 6 inches from your broiler for 15 minutes, basting occasionally with marinade. Remove from oven, turn chicken over, baste and broil an additional 15 minutes or until the chicken is tender and juices run clear when pierced with a fork.
