Lemon Thyme Chicken & Potatoes

Lemon, thyme, garlic, and a medium intensity extra virgin olive oil are mixed together, adding an earthy, lemony flavor to the chicken and potatoes.

What you’ll need:

1.5 lbs chicken breast

1.5 lbs small red potatoes

1 large onion

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (medium intensity)

2 lemons, one for juicing and other for slicing

5 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablepoons dried thyme

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

salt & pepper to taste

Here’s How:

Preheat oven to 400°. Cut chicken breast into cubes and place in a large bowl. Then cut small red potatoes in half, slice an onion, and add to the chicken.  In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Then add the mixture to the chicken and potatoes. Stir until everything is well coated. If desired, add more salt and pepper and stir. Pour mixture in a 9 x 13″ backing dish and spread it out evenly. Slice a lemon and add each slice in between the chicken and potatoes. Bake in oven for about 45 minutes until chicken is cooked through and potatoes turn a golden brown. Enjoy with a spring mix salad!
