Lemon Chicken with Green Beans and Red Potatoes

I got this recipe (and lots of other great ones!) from Kelly over at Kelly's Recipes. We loved it so much that I have now made it three times and I kid you not, it's delicious! We eat a lot of chicken around here so I was thrilled to get another recipe to "mix it up" a bit and that is also healthy!
You will need:
6 tablespoons olive oil
2 lemons, 1 thinly sliced, 1 juiced
4 cloves garlic
(I used 1 heaping tsp from jarred garlic, it was all I had and we are not huge garlic fans)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
3/4 lb green beans
(I used frozen string French kind, but you can use canned or regular ones also)
8 small red potatoes, quartered
4 chicken breasts
Preheat oven to 450. Coat a large baking dish with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Arrange lemon slices from 1 lemon in a single layer on the bottom of the dish. In large bowl combine remaining olive oil, lemon juice of 2nd lemon (I cut this to half the 2nd time around as the kids didn't like it as lemony as Dan and I had,) garlic, salt and pepper. Add green beans and toss to coat. Using tongs, remove green beans and arrange them on top of lemon slices. Add potatoes to same olive oil mixture and coat. Arrange on inside edge of dish on top of the beans. Place chicken in olive oil mixture and coat. Place chicken in dish. Roast for 50 minutes. Remove chicken and continue roasting potatoes/beans if necessary.
Getting ready to go in the oven...And ready to eat!! This feeds our family of five PLUS there is enough left over for Dan's lunch and for mine and Lauren's lunch the next day. For something so easy, tastes so good AND I get an extra meal out of it? YES!! Love it!
Thanks Kelly for passing this along!

  4. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
