Default Baked Garlic-Lime Chicken Breasts

Baked Garlic-Lime Chicken Breasts
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
8-10 garlic cloves, finely minced
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
8 chicken breast halves with skin and bones
parsley or cilantro sprigs for garnish

Combine lime juice, oil, and garlic in a large zip-lock style
plastic bag. Season chicken generously with salt and pepper and
add to the bag; seal carefully. Marinate chicken at least 2 hours
at room temperature and up to 24 hours in refrigerator, turning
several times.

Preheat oven to 400F. Remove chicken from marinade (discard
marinade) and arrange skin side up in a shallow baking pan. Do not
crowd. Roast in upper third of oven until just cooked through,
25 to 30 minutes. Increase oven temperature to broil. Set chicken
about 2 inches from heat until skin is crisp, about 2 minutes.
