One Pan Lemon Parmesan Chicken And Potatoes
- 1 1/2 lbs Chicken Tenders (or 4-5 Medium Chicken Breasts)
- 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
- 2 Tsp Fresh Oregano, Chopped
- 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
- 1 1/4 Cup Bread Crumbs
- 1/3 Cup Shredded Parmesan
- 1 Tsp Italian Seasoning
- 2 Eggs, Beaten
- 1 lb Small Yukon Gold Potatoes
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
- 2 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
- Optional: Fresh Grated Lemon Zest*
- Salt & Pepper, To Taste
Earlier in the day, I placed my chicken in a large plastic zip bag with the lemon juice, chopped oregano, garlic and olive oil. I recommend allowing the chicken to marinate for at least an hour, but I did this about 4 hours in advance. Place bag in the fridge until you are ready to cook. (TIP: If you pound your chicken to an even thickness, it will cook more quickly and evenly.)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Clean and cut the small potatoes into similar size pieces. Many were pretty small, so I just halved them. The larger ones ended up being cut in quarters. If they are about the same size, they will cook more evenly. In a large baking pan, I added the cleaned and cut potatoes, then tossed them in the 1/4 cup of olive oil and some salt & pepper.(*Optional: Add some fresh grated lemon zest for added flavor) Set aside.
Prepare two shallow bowls. One will have 2 eggs, beaten. In the other one, combine the bread crumbs and Italian seasoning. Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. Dip each piece of chicken in egg, then coat them in the bread crumb mixture. Place the chicken among the potatoes. When done, top each piece of chicken with the shredded parmesan. Add a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary in the pan.
Bake for 20-30 minutes. This will depend on the thickness of the chicken. Begin checking at 20 minutes. If not done, then return to oven and check in 5 minute intervals until the juices run clear. Poke the potatoes to check doneness. If they are still too firm, then remove the chicken from the pan and return the potatoes to the oven for another 10-15 minutes. Once the potatoes are tender, return chicken to the pan and sprinkle chopped parsley over the top. Enjoy!
Add a simple green salad and you have a well balanced meal!
