  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, oregano, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Place chicken breasts into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Brush lemon juice mixture over chicken.
  3. Place potatoes, red bell pepper strips, red onion, and lemon slices in a bowl, pour remaining lemon juice mixture over vegetables, and toss to coat. Arrange vegetables and lemon slices around chicken breasts in baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes; brush chicken and vegetables with pan drippings. Continue baking until chicken is browned, the juices run clear, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a breast reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 30 more minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Use more lemons for extra tangy goodness. Also use whatever vegetables you prefer; it is delicious with any.

This is wonderful! I used onions, red potatoes, carrots, red peppers and Brussel sprouts for the veggies. I put the oven on broil the last few minutes to brown the chicken.

This just didn't come out well for me. I think maybe my 9x13 was just too deep or something. I'd try this again on a jelly roll pan so that everything can get roasty good. My chicken came out so...

This was an extremely good recipe! Loved it! Watch your chicken carefully with the cooking time and temp, as written it will make the chicken dry.

The flavor of the sauce was delicious, but the chicken was dry, and I even took it out 10 minutes earlier than suggested. Next time I might try legs so the meat stays juicy, and I'll check it e...

Very simple and tasty. I used a large baking sheet instead of 9x13 to get more crispy edges on the veggies.

smells great while cooking tastes even better.
