Lemon and Garlic Chicken

This time, it’s not a typical French recipe but delicious and so easy to make that I have to share it.

Ingredients for 4 people:
6 tablespoons olive oil
2 organic lemons: 1 thinly sliced, 1 juiced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
16 small red potatoes or 8 medium, halved but not peeled
4 chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 400°F ( 180°C ). Coat a large baking dish or cast-iron skillet with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Arrange the lemon slices in a single layer in the bottom of the dish or skillet.

In a large bowl or zip-lock, combine the remaining oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper; add the chicken and potatoes, toss to coat. Of course, you can also add fresh or dried herbs. This can be done in advance, without the potatoes, up to one day earlier and kept in the fridge. Pour this mix into the pan and spread evenly.

Roast 40 to 50 minutes, until cooked through. Serve warm.

Bon appetit !
