No ratings yet

A hearty chicken dish perfect for a rainy day! Bright with lemon to keep your evening fresh!

Healthy meals can also be filling meals, and this skillet lemon chicken with roasted vegetables is one of them. Chicken is a fantastic source of lean protein, and the root vegetables in this dish are great sources of fiber. Protein and fiber are both important for maintaing a healthy weight. They also help keep you full.

This dish isn’t only healthy–it’s tasty, too! Lemon, rosemary, garlic, and onion are richly flavorful, and they add zest to otherwise plain chicken. If you like, you can make a large batch and enjoy the leftovers for lunch later in the week. This dish is so yummy, we think you’ll probably want to do just that!
