Chicken drummets with lemon, honey and rosemary

I try not to cook heavy meals when there's such a heat outside but husband needs his proteins every evening, so my choice is most often chicken or fish. This recipe is dead easy plus you can marinate the chicken overnight and just shove it into the oven one hour prior to dinner.

1 kg of chicken pieces - no breasts please
juice of a very big 1/2 lemon - about 5-6 table spoons
3 teaspoons of honey
1 big stem of rosemary - or 1,5 teaspoons of dried rosemary
dried oregano - optional
2 or more cloves of garlic - cut into pieces
3 tablespoons of olive oil

Mix all marinade ingredients with the chicken, make sure the marinade is evenly distrubuted. You can do it all in the baking dish to avoid washing up. Arrange the chicken in one layer and leave to marinate for a couple of hours at least, but the longer the better. Preheat oven to 200C. Roast chicken for 45 minutes covered with alfoil, uncover and roast for another 15 minutes. My chicken drummets were not too big, but if you have bigger pieces increase cooking time to 1h 15min. You can also bake potatoes along with the chicken in the same dish.
I served the chicken with string beans I bought at the Holesovicka trznice today. I simply sauteed them with a chopped fresh tomato and some chopped dill.
