Chicken Marinated in Garlic Oil


It's easy to find whole chicken precut at the store, but you can save money if you butcher it at home. This recipe for garlic-oil marinated chicken will please any crowd.

  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2011


  • 1/2 cup Garlic Oil with some cloves
  • 2 lemons, cut into thin rounds
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 whole chicken (3 1/2 to 4 pounds), cut into 8 to 10 pieces
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. In a large zip-top plastic bag, combine garlic oil and cloves, lemons, parsley, and chicken. Shake to coat and let sit at room temperature 30 minutes (or refrigerate, up to overnight).

  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Transfer garlic cloves, lemons, and chicken to a roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet. Season chicken with salt and pepper and roast until skin is golden and chicken is cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes.

    Easy and good! Quick meal to get on the table--just add rice pilaf and sauté broccolini in olive oil.

    I am surprised that you said there is no acid in this marinade. Doesn't lemon have an acid component to it?

    "Wonderful, Wonderful" as Lawrence Welk would say! I wish CuriousButtons would share her "signature" dish.
