Citrus Herb Chicken Thighs

Super easy to throw together and very family friendly. I used about 4 lbs of chicken thighs and didn't need to make more marinade -- one thing I love about marinades/dump freezer meal recipes! I suggest removing some of the skin to maximize the flavor, but the skin that is left crisps up so nicely in the oven.

2.5 lbs chicken thighs, bone-in with skin
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste

With a sharp knife, pierce a small hole in the chicken skin so marinade can soak through. Place the chicken in a gallon freezer bag. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix around. Allow chicken to marinade for 2 hours, then place in baking dish with marinade. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until juices run clear.

To freeze: Once chicken is in marinade, lay flat to freeze. Thaw in refrigerator and bake as directed above.
