Butter Baked Chicken with Garlic Lemon Aioli


On nights that we want a simple oven-baked dish, we usually just roast a chicken.  All you do is rub the chicken with salt and pepper place it in the oven. 

This simple recipe produces such amazing flavors, it got me thinking if we could build on it.  We combined different elements from other recipes and came up with this simple n’ easy Butter

Baked Chicken with Garlic Lemon Aioli that is absolutely delicious!!  You can use an entire chicken or just the thighs as we did on this, either way it will be great!  We hope you enjoy this one as much as we do!!
