Looking for a one-pan meal that is fresh and flavorful yet feels decadent enough for a special dinner? Consider this Greek lemon chicken bake from Mom’s Kitchen Handbook, which comes together with a few simple ingredients and very little prep work to create a hearty wintertime meal.
To make this one-pan dish, you first need to buy a small, whole chicken, and slice the chicken along the backbone or use kitchen shears to carefully cut the bird in half. Once your bird is prepared, set it in a pan and season it with simple, whole ingredients like garlic, onion and lemons. Next, cut and quarter small potatoes like red or yellow potatoes.
Then, simply let the chicken and potatoes roast together for about an hour and 15 minutes, and while it’s cooking, you can make a fresh green salad to go with it or pair it with crusty rolls.
