Roasted Lemon Chicken is a healthy, low-calorie and convenient dish that can be prepared in under fifteen minutes. It’s easy to make your own version at home with the ingredients you have on hand while creating less mess than conventional methods.

Roasted Lemon Chicken is a delicious and healthy dish. It has a sweet, citrusy flavor that goes well with the chicken. The lemon also adds a tangy taste to the recipe.

This Lemon Chicken Roasted version is one of my favorites since it’s a fantastic one-pan nutritious supper.

Ina Garten is without a doubt one of my favorite chefs. Most of us have watched her Food Network programs, and she often mentions Lemon Chicken. In fact, one of her husband, Jeffrey’s, favorite recipes is Lemon Chicken. So, using Ina as a model, I produced my own Lemon Chicken Roasted. 

And I’ve created versions of this dish, such as my Mediterranean Lemon Butter Chicken with olives and artichokes. However, I decided to include carrots and potatoes to make it a more full supper this time.

And this time I wanted to include the brined artichoke water as well as some more herbs. The finished product was tender, juicy chicken with a flavorful herb sauce.

How to Prepare This Fantastic Dish

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Skinless chicken is certainly healthier, but it does have the downside of not browning correctly, so I prefer to give it a crust to begin with.  

Then season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper. After that, sprinkle each side with olive oil before gently dredging the chicken in flour. I usually always use Wondra since it’s finer and requires less flour than ordinary flour. It’s acceptable to use only a little layer.  

Then, in a frypan over medium high heat, drizzle in the olive oil and add the chicken. Cook for 2 minutes until lightly browned, then flip and cook for another 2 minutes.

After that, brush a large baking dish with oil and equally distribute the chicken, potatoes, 2 lemon quarters, carrots, and artichokes.

In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining lemon half’s juice, chicken broth, artichoke can brining water, rosemary, fennel, and sage, and sprinkle the mixture evenly over the chicken and veggies.

Finally, put the pan in the preheated oven and roast the chicken and potatoes for 35-40 minutes, or until thoroughly done. The potatoes should be soft, and a meat thermometer should read 165 degrees for the chicken.
