Pan-Roasted Chicken with Lemon-Garlic Green Beans

Clean-up is a breeze with this one-dish dinner.  Recipe serves 4 with only 15 minutes of “hands on” prep.

What you’ll need:

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 lemons, 1 thinly sliced, 1 juiced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 pound green beans (trimmed)
  • 8 small red potatoes, quartered
  • 4 chicken breasts

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Coat a large baking dish (or cast iron skillet) with 1 tablespoon olive oil.  Arrange the lemon slices in a single layer in the bottom over the olive oil.
  • In a large bowl, combine the remaining olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper.  Add the green beans and toss to coat.
  • Using a slotted spoon or tongs, remove the green beans and place on top of the lemon slices.
  • Add the potatoes to the same bowl and repeat, tossing and arranging on the edge around the baking dish (or skillet).
  • Place the chicken in the same bowl and coat with olive oil mixture.  Place the chicken on top of the green beans.
  • Pour any of the remaining oil on top.
  • Roast for 50 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the dish.  Continue to roast the beans and potatoes for 10 more minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.
  • Serve warm.
