Step 1

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, toss chicken with garlic, a generous pinch of black pepper, orange zest and half the lemon zest. Rub seasoning all over chicken. In a medium baking dish, mix soy sauce, honey and lemon juice until honey dissolves. Lay chicken in marinade, flesh-side down, and marinate at least 10 minutes. (If marinating more than 1 hour, make sure marinade doesn’t cover skin.)

Remove chicken from marinade and transfer to a roasting pan, skin-side up. Lightly brush marinade over chicken, then transfer to oven. Reserve marinade. Roast until just cooked through, about 25 minutes. Brush chicken with marinade twice during roasting.

Meanwhile, toss broccoli with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place in a microwave-safe bowl and cover tightly with two layers of plastic wrap. Microwave on high until broccoli is tender but still has some crunch, 2-3 minutes. Transfer broccoli to a serving bowl. Top with remaining lemon zest.

Serve broccoli alongside chicken. Drizzle chicken pan juices over top.
