Gluten Free Rosemary Lemon Chicken & Potatoes


I got the idea for this recipe from here.  It is super simple and comes together very easily.  It is almost a no-recipe recipe for me.  She’s a lot more precise at the original recipe than I am.

Rosemary Lemon Chicken
Rosemary Lemon Chicken


Chicken Breasts, boneless, skinless
Rosemary Sprigs (1/2-1 per chicken breast)
3-4 garlic cloves, chopped in big chunks
Potatoes (I used red) cut into quarters, lengthwise
1-2 (or more, if you like) lemons, sliced
Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Preheat oven to 425°.

In a 9X13 baking dish put down 1/2 the slices of lemon, 1/2 rosemary sprigs and 1/2 chopped garlic.  Salt and pepper your chicken breasts on both sides and place on top of lemon, rosemary and garlic.  Top with remaining lemon, rosemary and garlic.  Season potatoes and place those around and on top of chicken.  Drizzle olive oil on all of it.  Bake 30-60 minutes, until chicken and potatoes are cooked.  Cooking times will depend on how thick your chicken is and how much you cook.  Once cooked, cover/tent with foil and let sit for about 5 minutes.

Serve with salad or a side vegetable.


Happy New Year 2016


bitmoji-20151230201152We are heading into a brand new year!  This past year has been a hard one for me…. lots of changes, loss, struggle.  I’m hoping that this new year will be an easier year for me and for you!

One thing that always makes it easier is menu planning and I love the freezer to crockpot meals.  It is so nice to just grab a bag in the morning and throw it in the crockpot and your dinner is  ready.

You can check out the Freezer to Crockpot meals. The choices are Hearty Western Casserole. Pasta Fagiola. Coconut Curry Chicken.  Autumn Harvest Chicken (or Pork)

My favorite is the Cilantro Lime Chicken with Corn and Beans.
