TIPS FOR BAKED CHICKEN WITH LEMON AND GARLIC SAUCE

1. If the chicken starts to brown too much cover with aluminum foil.

2. We usually bake the chicken at 180ºC (350ºF) but, if you lower the temperature to 150ºC (300ºF), despite taking longer to bake, it has the advantage of enhancing much more the flavors and the chicken gets more tender.

3. If you have leftovers, store the chicken in the fridge in a properly covered container (to prevent the growth of microorganisms). To avoid drying out the chicken, do not reheat the food in the oven, reheat it in the microwave.
