Lemon Chicken with red potatoes and artichokes

Baked Lemon Chicken 

This recipe is based on Ina Garten’s Lemon Chicken. I love Ina’s lemon chicken, but over the years I found myself making a few adaptions. First, I used boneless skinless chicken breasts instead of skin-on chicken breasts to make the dish a little healthier. Second, I added my sides to the pan, red potatoes and artichokes, and let them cook along with the chicken.

The second change has been a game-changer for me because I can quickly prep this recipe and then help with kids with homework. Then all I have to do before dinner is slice some homemade bread or make a nice green leafy salad. For dessert, my Zesty Lemon Bars would be lovely!

  • This baked lemon chicken recipe makes a lot of pan drippings. I like to use 1/4 cup of warm pan drippings to cover baby spinach leaves for a salad. I then garnish the salad with some of my homemade croutons! 
  • Sometimes I like to add 2 Tablespoons of capers on top of the chicken while it cooks, and then I serve the chicken, potatoes, artichokes, and some of the pan sauce over cooked linguine. Add some freshly grated Parmesan cheese and you’ve got a killer dinner on your hands!

  12. Lynn Franklin says:

    Really good. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is that my 1 recommendation is to par cook the potatoes first. Or cut them smaller so they get done with the chicken. I had to leave it in the oven a lot longer to get the potatoes cooked which meant I overcooked the chicken. Else, awesome recipe as I’m a huge lemon fan. I also added some grape tomatoes to the dish too.
