'It's All Going To Be Okay' Roasted Lemon Chicken

I make this recipe when I am not feeling like myself. Sometimes, the whole family is out of whack and we just need one solid "thing" to ground us so, dinner it is. When the kids are fighting and cranky, I make dinner. When Clint is flying all over the country for days on end, I make dinner. When our pup, Poppy knocks over a glass vase, I make dinner. 

Cooking a meal in this house can feel next to impossible sometimes because let's face it, 3 kids is a lot of energy and the time is not always there (and that's okay!)

I am sharing this recipe with you because it's delicious, the prep is easy, it's "little helper" friendly, and it always makes my off-days a little less off.

I call this recipe 'It's All Going To Be Okay Roasted Lemon Chicken,' because it is, indeed all going to be okay. Let's cook!

Add this to your grocery list:

  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 lemons
  • 4 cloves garlic 
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoons of paprika
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh thyme
  • 3 teaspoons of sea salt 
  • 2 teaspoons of coarse black pepper 
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (thinner = less cook time)
  • 4 cups of baby potatoes
  • 1lb of green beans 
  • 1lb of brussel sprouts
  • 1/2 a red onion

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425

2. Half your potatoes and Brussel sprouts

3. Whisk 4T olive oil, lemon juice and zest of 2 lemons, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper

4. In a separate bowl, toss potatoes with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle with extra salt and pepper

5. Arrange chicken breasts, potatoes, green beans, and Brussel sprouts on 2 large baking sheets. Drizzle herb mixture over top tossing with your hands to be sure it's all coated evenly. Make sure to coat sparsely so your veggies will crisp up in the oven.

6. Roast for 30-40 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken. Chicken needs to be an internal temperature of 165. Potatoes, Brussel sprouts, green beans, should have some crispiness. You can also broil each pan for a few minutes to create more of a crisp.

7. Eat, enjoy, and know that things have a way of working out in the end.
