This is Nigella Lawson’s garlic lemon chicken. It’s one of my go-to recipes. It is so easy and delicious, filling the house with garlic-y, lemony aromas. The only thing missing is the sex appeal. I wasn’t wearing a silk robe while I cooked it!
PS – you can also buy already cut up chicken.

Place the chicken, garlic and lemon in a large roasting pan. Pull apart the thyme and distribute throughout. Add the oil and mix all ingredients together by hand, coating with the oil and leaving chicken skin side up.
Pour the wine over everything and finish with black pepper to taste. Cover the pan with foil cook for 2 hours. Remove the foil, increase heat to 400°F and cook for another 30-45 minutes.
