Corbelli Chicken

So I think we have tried news ways to dress up chicken and last night I came up with a new recipe. I picked one ingredient that I know each person enjoys in my family. A given was Emma with her butter. That girl lives for the stuff ;) Noah loves lemon and for Dan I needed something Italian and chose oregano. Myself, I choose salt and olive oil, the 2 things I can't cook without. I told the kids I was creating in the kitchen once again and needed their honest feedback on the chicken they were about to eat. Since mine are also avid dunkers, I also explained it needed to be consumed before it was drowned in ranch, bbq sauce, what have you. So.....we have a hit! Corbelli chicken will be a repeat for sure. Maybe you'll give it a try or do something similar. Taking your favorite herbs, spices and making your own famous family chicken! I'd love any feedback both here on the blog or in the facebook group on what you think of any of the recipes you try!

4 bone-in chicken breasts with skin
2 lemons
4 Tbsp. of butter
Kosher salt, pepper and oregano to taste

Slice the lemons into rings, (you'll need at least 8) and arrange 4 in the bottom of your roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil onto each chicken breast then add salt pepper and oregano. Cut a small slit at the top of the chicken, under the skin, and add 1 Tbsp. of butter to each piece. While adding the butter make sure to season under the skin as well for full flavor. Once everyone is seasoned and bone side down in the pan, place a lemon ring on top of each piece. You should end up with lemon both underneath and on top of each piece of chicken. Bake at 325 for one hour and serve with your favorite sides.
