This skillet lemon garlic chicken recipe is not only tasty, but packed full of healthy, detoxifying ingredients. Lemon Garlic Chicken is a perfect weeknight meal and the chicken marinade is zesty and full of flavor. This family friendly recipe is a great way to get some goodness in!

This is not a trendy “clean eating dish”, it will actually help cleanse you from the inside-out! Not to mention the flavors are so delicious and satisfying.


  • 1 lb organic chicken thighs breast will work too

  • 2 tbsp avocado oil

  • 4 tbsp fresh organic lemon juice

  • 1 tsp lemon zest

  • 2 tbsp raw honey

  • 3 cloves organic garlic chopped

  • 1 tbsp dried organic turmeric

  • 1 tsp organic rosemary

  • 1/4 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp kosher salt

  • 1/2 tsp. ground pepper

  • 1 small onion cut into wedges

  • Lemon slices for garnish

  • Rosemary sprigs for baking


  • Preheat oven to 190C/375F degrees.

  • In a small bowl whisk together avocado oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, honey, garlic, turmeric, cumin, rosemary, salt, and pepper.  

  • Pour the turmeric marinade over the chicken and allow to sit for a minimum of 1 hour. (If marinating for longer, cover and place in the refrigerator. Before cooking, allow the chicken to come back to room temperature.)

  • Place chicken in a cast iron skillet (or an oven safe pan) along with the wedges of onion, lemon slices, and extra rosemary sprigs.

  • Pour about half of the marinade over the chicken and onions.

  • Place chicken in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. (About halfway through the cook time, I like to spoon some of the marinade from the pan over the chicken to baste it a bit and to keep it moist.)


I served this with roasted spicy rainbow carrots (olive oil, cumin, chili powder, cayenne and salt/pepper, roast at 190C/375F for 20 minutes) and fresh arugula salad (so simple-just add salt, pepper and olive oil).

Top Tips For Making This Chicken Recipe:

  • Let the chicken marinade for at least an hour, longer if you can.

  • Let the chicken come up to room temperature before you cook it and it will stay nice and tender.

  • Cook the chicken in a preheated oven for the best results.

  • Let the chicken rest for ten minutes before serving it.

  • You can use this lemon garlic chicken marinade to make lemon garlic chicken wings as well!
