Ginger Lime Roasted Chicken

I love the flavors of summer, and this twist on chicken is light, bursting with flavor, and super simple to put together on a busy weeknight when you don't have time to watch something cooking on the stove.

4 bone in, skin on chicken breasts ($1.99)
juice of 3 limes, plus the zest of 1 lime ($.25)
2 T. minced ginger ($.25)
1 tsp. black pepper ($.05)
1 1/2 tsp. salt ($.05)
1 tsp. olive oil ($.10)
1 T. brown sugar ($.05)

In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredents except chicken. Remove skin from chicken, marinade in the ginger lime mixture for 2 hours.

Bake uncovered at 325 for 1 hour 15 minutes, or until juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink.

Yields = 4 servings
Cost: $2.74
Cost per serving: $.69
