I love to plan a great meal for Sunday evening. I guess I look at Sunday as the final day of the week (even though it's technically the first of the week on the calendar). So, in doing so, I will often cook meals that require a little more effort.
This time, I chose to cook pan roasted chicken with lemon garlic green beans. I also added some mushrooms to this recipe.
Here are the ingredients you will need.
olive oil, lemons, garlic, salt, pepper, new red potatoes, fresh snapped green beans, chicken breast (bone-in), and mushrooms (optional)
This recipe has a lot of prep involved, but once you put it in the oven, it's done! So, it's easy after you've put it together.
In a large baking pan, add some olive oil to coat bottom. Then slice up a lemon and place slices along bottom of pan.
Then mix lemon juice, minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper together to make a marinade. Add green beans to the mixture and coat them well.
Place green beans over the lemon slices.
Then, do the same thing with the potatoes
Place them along the edges of the pan.
(I added the mushrooms this way too.)
Finally, mix the chicken breasts with the marinade and add them to the center on top of the green beans.
Cook in a 450 degree oven for almost an hour. Make sure your chicken is cooked to reach 165 degrees. (use a meat thermometer)
If necessary, pull chicken out and finish cooking vegetables till soft. My chicken was extra large, so I cooked mine a bit longer.
Then, serve chicken with the vegetables on the side.
Yum! Everything will have a lemony/garlic flavor.
Why, how about some brownie ala mode!

One thing about this recipe though, I would double the marinade mixture part. I ended up having to make a second batch in order to coat the chicken well. You don't want to skimp on this part since it is what gives this meal such a great flavor.
I hope you'll give it a try!
Thanks for stopping by.
