Chicken that will Make you go Mmmmhhhh

My daughter first cooked this for me a few weeks back and it was totally delicious, takes 10 mins to prep and  40 minutes till ready for the table. Juicy, crispy, succulent and the flavours are just amazing. Once you have made this I promise you it won't be the last. I think the recipe came from Nigel Slater originally but I can't find it. If you try this I would love to hear what you thought of it.

Set the oven to 220c (Gas Mark7)

Chicken thighs or legs pieces I used 6 this for this dish, but have made it with just two pieces and it turns out exactly the same.

1 lemon quartered
Sprigs of Thyme & Rosemary
Olive oil
Sea Salt

Use a metal dish and put about 2 tbls of olive oil in add the chicken, rub and roll till well covered , place the quartered lemons around the dish and I usually squeeze one quarter over the chicken. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and then add your rosemary and Thyme. Pop in the oven and wait for the wonderful mouthwatering smells to fill your kitchen. I serve this with crusty bread to mop up the juices.

I never got to take a finished picture as it went straight to the table, and well I was so hungry I forgot. But it came out a gorgeous golden brown.
