SHEET PAN LEMON CHICKEN

Ingredients

Marinade
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp canola oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried oregano
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper

4 bone in skin on chicken breasts
2 lemons, quartered
4 medium red potatoes
2 medium zucchini
1 Tbsp lemon pepper

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450F.

Oil or spray one large (or 2 small) rimmed sheet pan with non-stick spray.

Whisk together marinade ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

Cut potatoes and zucchini into 1 inch pieces and put into a large bowl.

Add chicken pieces to large bowl and pour marinade over potatoes, zucchini and chicken.  Stir until well coated.

Cover bowl and marinate chicken and vegetables in refrigerator for 1 hour or overnight.

Arrange marinated chicken and vegetables in a single layer, on the sheet pan.  Arrange lemon wedges all around chicken and vegetables.

Roast for 35 minutes.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle chicken with lemon pepper.

Return to oven and roast for an additional 5 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the chicken reads 165F.

Remove from oven and let the chicken rest for 10 minutes.  Before serving squeeze the roasted lemon quarters over the chicken and vegetables.

Tip: marinate vegetables and chicken overnight in a large resealable freezer bag. Place contents on a sheet pan the following day and roast for a quick week night meal.
