Ingredients:  
2 tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary or 1 tbsp dried
2 tbsp. olive oil
3 garlic cloves, smashed
1/4 c. lemon juice, divided
1 tsp. salt (optional)
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Directions:
In resealable plastic food-storage bag, combine rosemary, oil, garlic, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, salt, pepper and paprika. Add thighs; seal and turn to coat. Marinate 15 minutes at room temperature or longer in refrigerator, turning chicken occasionally. Heat oven to 400. Remove chicken from marinade; arrange skin side up in roasting pan. Roast basting frequently with remaining lemon juice and pan drippings, until chicken is cooked, about 30 minutes or until juices run clear when cut at bone. Meanwhile, in small saucepan, steam zucchini in lightly salted water until tender, about 8 minutes. Garnish and serve with zucchini.

Personal Notes:
