I’m a huge fan of one pan meals (like this one, and this one). I’m not sure if it’s the convenience of putting all the ingredients in one pan or the fact that you can stick it in the oven and relax for an hour or so. Either way, one-pan meals are the way to go!

Baked Chicken Potatoes

Aside from one-pan meals, I’m also a fan of chicken with potatoes. You can find more chicken and potato dinner ideas here, or here. I love using different cuts of chicken and different types of potatoes.

Lemon Chicken

This recipe is a spin on the classic lemon roasted chicken.

Herb Roasted Potatoes

Since I left the skin on the chicken, I used butter instead of olive oil in order to get a deeper color. I also didn’t add too much lemon to the dish because the real star is the Green Herb Sauce.

Green Herb Sauce

It is so simple to make! Just throw all the ingredients into a food processor and pulse a few times. The herb sauce gets brushed over the hot chicken as soon as it comes out of the oven. The flavors mingle together and stick onto the perfectly roasted chicken. Your nose will thank you!
