Lemon Chicken, Green Bean and Potato Bake

My husband and I have been trying to eat a little healthier so I've been experimenting more with our dinner options. Now we're not too adventurous with food, and in fact, our normal dinners consist of a lot of fajitas, grilled cheese and soup, and pasta. Very exciting stuff folks.

So what is my solution? Well, I came up with a one-dish lemon chicken, green bean and potato bake. I remember seeing something like this somewhere but for the life of me I can't remember!

It was quite delicious - and it's healthy too!

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast,s cut in halves
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups of green beans
  • 1 lb of red potatoes
  • 1/2 tsp of pepper
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 2 tbs of olive oil
  • 1 - 2 gloves of garlic, minced 

1. In a medium prep bowl mix olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper until well combined.
2. Place sliced lemon in the bottom of a lightly greased 9 x 6 pan. You do not need to cover the whole bottom, just spread the slices throughout.
3. Place green beans in the middle of the pan and on top of the lemon.
4. Dip the chicken in the olive oil mixture, making sure that it's well coated. Place the chicken on top of the green beans.
5. Dip the potatoes in the rest of the mixture and spread the potatoes on the sides of the pan.
6. Drizzle the remaining mixture over everything.
7. Bake at 350 for about an hour or until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are soft.

Let me know what you think of this. I hope you enjoy!
