6 tbsp olive oil
2 lemons, 1 thinly sliced, 1 juiced

4 chicken breasts (bones left in, with skin, about 3¼ lbs)

How to make Pan-Roasted Chicken With Lemon-Garlic Green Beans

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 450 degrees F.

Step 2: With a tbsp olive oil, grease a large baking dish or cast-iron skillet. In the bottom of the prepared dish or skillet, arrange the slices of lemon in a single layer.

Step 3: Combine the rest of the oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add the green beans and toss to coat. Take the green beans out using a slotted spoon or tongs and arrange them over the lemon slices. To the same olive oil mixture, add the potatoes and toss. Remove the potatoes from the mixture using the same slotted spoon or tongs and arrange them along the inside edge of the dish over the green beans. Now, place the chicken in the mixture and toss to coat completely. Transfer the chicken to the dish skin-side-up. Over the chicken, pour the rest of the olive oil mixture.

Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and roast for about 50 minutes. When done, remove the dish from the oven and take out the chicken. Return to the oven and resume baking for another 10 minutes until the potatoes are tender.

Step 5: On 4 serving plates, place the chicken breast, then equally divide the green beans and potatoes on each serving. Enjoy warm!
