NOTES

A lot of people were concerned about the olive oil being cooked at such a high temperature and that it can break down and become harmful so I have switched to using corn or canola oil. Although the oven temp is 450 degrees, the food (and consequently the oil) doesn’t reach anywhere near that temperature and it’s only in the oven for a short time. I have never had an issue with the small amount of extra virgin olive oil reaching it’s smoke point on the chicken, but if you are concerned, I recommend doing some research and making that decision for yourself.
