Lemon Herb Chicken with Roasted potatoes is a complete, delicious meal. Even though it cooks in just 30 minutes, this sauce will have people thinking it took all day.
Why do people start blogs? It’s not because we desire a lot of hard work and it’s definitely, in my case, not for the money. It’s for the relationships that we establish. Friends that you make and may never meet but look forward spending virtual time with. Friends that create amazing dishes like Lemon Herb Chicken with Roasted potatoes!
One of the friendships that I’ve made is with Michelle, creator of A Dish of Daily Life. If you’ve never seen Michelle’s blog, you really should check it out. Michelle is a bit under the weather right now and just like any friend, you want to do what you can to help them out.[Tweet “Lemon Herb Chicken with Roasted Potatoes #GetWellMichelle #recipe”]
A group of fellow bloggers has gotten together to try some of our favorite recipes from Michelle’s blog to share with our readers and on social media. It’s my hope that you will send some of your love her way while she recoups.
The hardest part of all of this was deciding on a recipe. There were so many that I wanted to make! Needing dinner inspiration, I selected her Lemon Herb Chicken with Roasted Potatoes. The only change that I made was to throw a couple of carrots in with the potatoes. I had my whole meal finished and on the table in 30 minutes.
Don’t have time to make it now? Pin it for later!
Lemon Herb Chicken with Roasted Potatoes – #GetWellMichelle
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 lb of potatoes cut in 1/2 inch pieces
- 3 tablespoons butter divided
- Olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 1/2 cup of light or heavy cream
- 1/2 teaspoon all-purpose flour *plus a small amount if needed
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- Juice from one lemon
- 4 tablespoons of fresh mixed herbs chopped (I used rosemary, thume and parsley)
- Salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- Add potatoes to a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes.
- Brush chicken with olive oil and salt and pepper. Add to baking sheet. Bake for an additional 20 minutes.
- While chicken bakes, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium-sized saucepan. Add garlic and saute until fragrant (one minute).
- Combine Dijon mustard and white wine and whisk together.
- Add cream to wine mixture, whisking to combine. Mixture should start to thicken. If not, dust with a small amount of flour until mixture starts to thicken.
- Add chicken broth to loosen the sauce up slightly, and mix until thoroughly combined. remove from the heat.
- Add the last tablespoon of butter and stir until melted. Stir in lemon juice and fresh herbs.
- Salt and pepper according to taste.
- Once chicken has cooked for 20 minutes, broil for 2 to 3 minutes to brown it slightly.
- Plate chicken and roasted potatoes. Spoon sauce over chicken right before serving.
This dish was beyond delicious! That sauce is smooth and creamy and the lemon and herbs elevate this dish beyond ordinary. I will definitely be putting this dish to my list of favorites. It wasn’t a hardship having the rest of the wine with dinner either.
