1. In a large ziplock style plastic bag, combine lime juice, oil and garlic; season generously with salt and pepper. Add chicken and seal bag, removing as much air from bag as you can. Marinate chicken, turning bag over once or twice, at least 2 hours at room temperature and up to 24 hours in refrigerator. 2. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. 3. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Arrange skin side up, without crowding in a shallow baking pan. Season chicken with salt and pepper and roast in upper third of oven until just cooked through, 25-30 min. 4. Change oven setting to broil and broil chicken about 2 inches from heat until skin is crisp, about 2 min.
