What could be better than how your mouth starts to water when you think of eating chicken that is drenching in a lemon, garlic, ginger, butter sauce. You would think that I had not eaten in a long while but as I write this I did eat recently but yet the thoughts of those delectable flavors makes me salivate. I hope you and your family enjoy this dish as much as we do!

Isn’t this a beautiful chicken? It is completely free of growth hormones and antibiotics. Sometimes I am able to get chickens that do not have added antibiotics and growth hormones if my store has them. When the store has the healthier option then I’m willing to pay a little more to know that my family is not consuming a chicken that is filled with antibiotics and growth hormones. How about you?
Saute ginger, smashed garlic in butter and olive oil, add lemon to make your sauce. Then take this mixture and spread over the prepared chicken, inside and out. Salt and pepper the chicken and bake in the oven until a meat thermometer registers 155 degrees F. Let the meat rest for 10 minutes and the juices will be absorbed into the meat. (Here’s what happens–the chicken continues to cook as it rests. The temperature will go up about 10 degrees while resting. The resting period allows the meat to come up to the right temperature of 165 degrees F. and allows the juices to be absorbed back into the chicken. This will give you a very moist chicken)
This chicken is very good served with golden potatoes and asparagus but would also be delicious with rice or pasta. The sides will absorb the flavors from the lemon garlic ginger sauce.
