  6. Sprinkle chicken with salt, and set aside.
  7. Place all ingredients for lemon sauce in a medium/large-sized bowl.
  8. Using a hand blender, blend all ingredients for lemon sauce until smooth, and pour on top of chicken.
  9. Place chicken in the oven or air-fryer, and bake (use the roast feature if using an air-fryer) at 350º for around 20 minutes per pound, or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165º. 
  10. For crisp skin, place on broil, or air-fry for 2-5 minutes once chicken is finished cooking.
  11. Remove from heat, and serve warm! Enjoy!
