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.
Without further ado, and please don’t make me beg, you need this recipe in your life! Print it, save it, take a snapshot of it… do whatever it takes for it to be your next meal.
