One Pan Lemon Chicken
One pan meals have been a go-to in my house ever since my girl friend introduced me to them. Now-a-days, I make them easily once a week. Quick simple dinners (like this lemon noodle bowl!) are a necessity for busy moms. And having all the ingredients in one dish makes for simplicity and easy cleaning.
This lemon dish makes the perfect meal. It’s filling, flavorful and easy to make. Lemon and garlic pair together so beautifully that no matter what vegetable you swap into this dish it will work perfectly.

On top of that, both lemon and garlic have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and are easily two foods you should consume daily.
This is a classic “meat, potatoes & vegetable meal” but with a healthy and tasty twist. There’s no major prep work and you can mostly just put it into the oven and forget about it: making it a perfect weeknight dish.
