Citrus oven roasted chicken

I found a roasted chicken recipe that I liked, so I tweaked it a little bit to fit my needs. Some of the seasonings I used, I also used on another chicken recipe but this one is a little different.

Recipe serves 5

1 package chicken drumsticks, bone in skin on
1 package chicken thighs bone in skin on
2 lemons
 2 oranges
fresh parsley (for garnish)
1 small yellow onion, sliced
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons dried parsley
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper

Add 1/4 cup olive oil to a bowl
Add sugar, dried parsley,garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper to bowl
cut lemon in half, squeeze juice into bowl
cut orange in half, squeeze juice into bowl
whisk together, this will be the marinade for the chicken
Add chicken to the marinade and let sit for 15 minutes
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Slice remaining oranges and lemons
In a 9x13 pan arrange a few lemon and orange slices, as well as onion
Place chicken skin side up in the pan on top of citrus, scatter remaining onion and citrus slices on top
Bake in oven for 1 hour, then remove from oven and allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes to retain the juices.
Sprinkle fresh parsley over top for a garnish, This goes really great served over white rice.
