Hello, my friends! How are you?!

ME, you ask? How am I?! I AM terrified of the freezing-cold that currently lives outside my door. Sometimes, I wish I could tell you that I enjoyed the snow and my winter white coat, but that kinda romance does not live around here. Yoga pants and hoodies [indoors] are pretty much rockin’ my world right now.

On the plus side? We get to enjoy home cooked meals erryday! Our rotation goes a little somethin’ like this; chicken, pasta, pasta, chicken, pasta, soup, LEMON chicken and potatoes. Predictability is my bestie.

WHAT IS LEMON CHICKEN AND POTATOES

This is a fresh, flavorful, and healthy one pan meal prepared with marinated boneless skinless chicken thighs, potatoes, red onions, and bell peppers. This one pan supper couldn’t be simpler to pull together, and it’s a proven crowd-pleaser.

HOW TO MAKE LEMON CHICKEN AND POTATOES

There is just something so wonderful about a lemony, golden chicken dinner that makes me go YAY!

  • We will first make our marinade with lemon juice, olive oil, and some herbs. We will add the chicken to a ziploc bag with half of our marinade and let it sit for 20 minutes.
  • When ready, we will brown our chicken thighs in a skillet, arrange the potatoes and veggies all around it, and drizzle the rest of the marinade over everything.
  • Next, we will cover the pan and put it in the oven for about 35 minutes. When finished cooking, I advise to uncover and continue to cook for an additional 7-ish minutes, or until chicken and potatoes are golden in color.
  • Remove from oven, transfer to plates, and serve with lemon wedges.

    Hi! I love this recipe. Thank you for sharing it! Did you by any chance revise this recipe? I remember making something just like this a few years ago without the peppers and I don’t think it required any marinating. If that recipe is yours, could you share the original? Thanks so much!!

    Hello!

    I have enjoyed making a couple of your one pot dinners and my family has thoroughly enjoyed them. This lemon and chicken recipe was delicious! the combination of flavors was perfect. I may try it with some chayote versus the potatoes. I cannot wait to try more recipes that are easy and take only a few ingredients. Works out great for a busy family to sit down to a good meal at the end of the day. Thank you!

    Much peace,
    Shirley

    I’m allergic to beef and pork so we eat a lot of chicken. Needless to say, I’m always on the lookout for new chicken recipes! Thanks!
