Why we ❤️ it
If you're looking for a new, great one-step chicken dish to serve, this simple lemon and garlic chicken recipe will make you fall in love with your new favorite dinner recipe.
What's in it?
Chicken, sweet potato, carrot, and my magical garlic and lemon sauce. This is a very flexible dish, so you can use chicken breast in lieu of thighs, and add more vegetables (like broccoli, for example, if you so wish.
Why it's so good
The lemon and garlic sauce is a surprising combination of sweet, sour, and tangy that's also easy and quick to make. The chicken is marinated in it, and the vegetables bathe in the released chicken broth and sauce absorbing all the flavors.
If you feel particularly adventurous, add some chunks of fresh pineapple to your vegetable mix. Yes, it tastes divine.
