Lemon Chicken with Veggies

Roasted Lemon Chicken with Veggies including green beans and red potatoes. One of the easiest and yummiest dinner recipes!

Happy Wednesday!

I have another Tried and True recipe here to start off your morning. I bet you’re wondering what you should do for dinner. Well, wonder no more. This Lemon Chicken with Veggies dish is just begging for you to make it. It seems like there are millions of different ways to make chicken. This recipe is a new way for us! It’s simple, delicious, and perfect for dinner! It can easily be changed up too, so I’m going to try some other vegetables next time we make it. 😉

I love being able to throw something together before the kids get home from school, then let it cook while we do homework. It’s ready and perfect just in time for dinner. No crazy kids running around the kitchen at 5 o’clock while you’re trying to figure out what to make. Try it out and I bet you’ll love how smoothly your dinner prep (or as I like to call it “witching hour”) goes.

Good luck!

Lemon Chicken with Veggies
 
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 6 TB Olive Oil
  • 2 lemons, 1 thinly sliced, 1 juiced
  • 4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ¾ pound trimmed green beans
  • 8 small red potatoes, quartered
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Instructions
  1. Coat a large baking dish with 1 TB of the olive oil. On the bottom of your dish, arrange lemon slices in a single layer.
  2. Combine the remaining oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper In a large bowl. One by one, you will need to coat the green beans, potatoes and chicken in the oil mixture. Start by adding the green beans first. Toss to coat. Then, using tongs, remove the green beans and place them on top of the lemon slices. Next, add the potatoes to the olive-oil mixture and toss to coat. Using your tongs again, arrange the potatoes over the green beans, along the inside edge of the dish. Last, coat the chicken in the oil mixture and place in your dish. Pour any remaining olive-oil mixture over the chicken.
  3. Cook at 350 for 1 hour - 1 hour and 15 minutes (or until potatoes and veggies look soft and chicken cooked through). Serve warm.

Since green beans aren’t my favorite, next time, I’m going to trying swapping them out for Asparagus. Yummy!

      Thank you..it is!! Hope you’ll give it a try! Thanks for stopping by!

        I’m making this tonight. Did you bake covered or uncovered? I’m also using boneless skinless chicken breast will it still be moist being cooked at 350 for an hour?

        • 4

          I made it exactly as written, covered during the whole hour with aluminum foil! It was delicious! It didn’t come out quite as pretty as the pictures here but it was super moist and soo yummy.

    Do I cover this dish with foil?

    I made this dish and was really looking forward to eating it. However, the lemon taste was overpowering. I literally thought we were eating a lemon by itself. I think maybe one lemon would have been okay. Maybe half juiced and the other half as slices. The only thing my family ate was the chicken.

    Looks delicious but it’s waaaaaayyy to lemony. Tastes like you’re eating the rind of the lemon. Don’t get me wrong, I love some lemon on my chicken and veggies but this just was so bitter!! I tried separating the veggies and cooked them in some extra seasoning and there was no salvaging this dish. Sorry! Looked good though!

    Thanks for the receipe but it was a little to sour and probably needs more salt but ither than that it was great 🙂

    Soooooo good!!! I love all things lemon and this was delicious. I added 1/2 tsp. of rosemary to the recipe. I’ll definitely be making this again.

  7. 15

    Use half the amount of lemon. Otherwise it comes out very bitter.

    I just made this. I recommend using half the amount of lemon, otherwise it is too sour. I also recommend flipping the chicken over halfway through. When it was done, the top half of the chicken was cooked while the bottom wasn’t =(

    This recipe did not go according to plan. The oo mixture didn’t last for all the green beans, potatoes and chicken. The potatoes took WAY longer than an hour and a half to cook. They were 1/8’d and after an hour and 18 min, I had to jack up the heat to 425

    I LOVE this recipe! However, after trying it twice now I feel confident in the changes I’m making tonight. First, I put a bit more lemon and garlic (I LOVE them both like crazy!). I also added crinkle cut carrots. The first go, the potatoes were waaaaay undercooked with this timing (cut is 1/4s). The second time I put them in the microwave for 2 mins, then coated them and put in the oven while I prepared the rest of the meal. They were PERFECT! My whole family loved this chicken and it is highly requested. Thanks so much for the recipe!!

    Very bitter! My family would not eat the green beans, only the chicken & potatoes. Maybe a couple slices of lemon in the bottom instead of a whole lemon.

  12. 24

    I’m going to make this tonight but need clarification on amount of garlic … is that really 4 tsps of minced garlic or 4 cloves of minced garlic?
