Italian herbs and garlic chicken

Dried spices are just as good!

Don't worry if you are not able to get your hands on some fresh garlic or basil or thyme or whatever. Or, maybe you just would rather buy the dried stuff because it has a much longer shelf-life. You can still prepare flavorful and tasty dishes.

Here is a recipe for what I call 'Italian herbs and garlic chicken'.

What you need:

Garlic powder
Italian seasoning
Black pepper
Chicken (I used skinless thighs and drumstick)

What to do:
Season chicken generously with garlic and italian seasonings
Add salt and pepper to your taste
Mix properly making sure chicken is covered properly in seasonings on all sides
Leave to marinate for 30 minutes to an hour (the longer, the intenser the flavor)
Place in a 450 degree Fahrenheit oven for 30 - 45 minutes (until cooked) - make sure to check every 10 minutes or so, and turn over - to prevent overcooking on either side.

Enjoy with coleslaw, fries, a baked potato, or whatever side you like!
