Lemon garlic chicken with potatoes is an excellent option when you do not want to fuss in the kitchen. One pan is all you need (aside from additional veggies of course).

The ingredients are simple to prepare and will be very quick to throw together.

I usually use skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs because they are very moist and flavourful.

There is not a lot of overpowering flavours to this dish, so feel free to add more garlic and lemon. Other nice additions would be 1 Teaspoon of Sweet Paprika or a little (1/4 Teaspoon) of Cayenne Pepper for heat.

Add oil mixture to the chicken mixture. Mix this up with your hands so that all the bits get coated. Since your hands touched raw chicken, wash and sanitise your hands. Spread this mixture into a greased oven proof pan. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook

 

Place pan into preheated oven and cook for about 30 minutes. When the chicken reaches 165°F (74°C) and the potatoes are tender, turn on the broiler for 2-3 minutes to brown and crisp the chicken skin. I like to keep the door open a bit so I can keep an eye on it. Don't let it burn.
