Ingredients

  • 3 pounds chicken pieces I used drumsticks because they are the most affordable
  • 6 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard or any mustard
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large lemon zest & juice
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt

Instructions

Marinade:

  1. Mix the marinade ingredients together in a large ziploc bag or glass container large enough to accommodate all your chicken.
  2. Add in the chicken, mixing to ensure all pieces get covered.
  3. Place the mixture in a the fridge and marinate for a full day or longer. Remember, the longer you marinate, the stronger the flavor!

Cooking:

  1. When you are ready to roast, remove the chicken from the fridge.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Place the chicken on a large cookie sheet (sans additional marinade), and roast for about 45 minutes until the skin is golden and the the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced with a knife.
