Sometimes we just need some hearty meat and potatoes… and we need it to be easy and to taste amazing. That’s why I’m sharing with you this simple and delicious recipe for Lemon-Herb Chicken and Potatoes.
You guys. This is one of the most simple and amazing recipes for chicken I’ve ever placed upon my taste buds. No lie. AND It’s a perfect day to share my new favorite chicken recipe… because today is my blog’s 4th birthday!
I can’t believe 4 years ago today I hit the publish button on my very first recipe and launched this little blog of mine. So much has happened since then and I can’t believe how far it has come.
What started out as a hobby has turned into a career that I never thought would be possible back then. So thank you to my readers that have helped this dream of mine to come true.
This chicken recipe feeds about 4 people, depending upon their appetites. I used 3 pounds of chicken (legs and thighs) which was 7 pieces of chicken (4 thighs and 3 legs). You can half the recipe, but I would recommend to use the same amount of ingredients for the sauce because it’s just that good… it’s so amazing with crusty French bread!
The only other dish you’ll need besides a roasting pan to prepare this recipe is a bowl to mix the sauce ingredients in. If you half the recipe you should be able to use a large cast iron skillet instead of a roasting pan.
This is a perfect recipe for busy weeknights (especially during the holiday season!) or for entertaining with minimal cleanup. Crisp-tender chicken in a savory citrus sauce with herbs is ALWAYS a winner! 🙂Print
