Lemon Parmesan Chicken and Veggies

This is a one sheet recipe--everything cooks together on one cookie sheet or baking dish.  This recipe does call for a small marinade time for the chicken---30 -60 minutes so prepare ahead of time for that.
The great thing about these types of recipes is you put it in the oven and when it is done dinner is served, including all the accompaniments.  NO trying to get everything done at the same time.  For some people this is a real challenge and one sheet cooking may just be your answer!
Mix together:

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (or juice of ½ a lemon)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • ½ tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper, to season
Add 4 boneless chicken breasts or thighs.  Marinade for 30-60 minutes in the egg mixture.
In another bowl mix together:
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs
  • ⅓ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • After the chicken sits in the egg mixture, dip each piece into the breadcrumb mixture-coating both sides.  Place on a baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper or silicone that has been sprayed with cooking spray.   Spray the chicken with the cooking spray once it is on the pan.
On the same baking sheet ass the following:
  • 8-10 (1 pound | 500 g) baby potatoes, quartered
Melt 1/2 c. butter 
  • Then add in:
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • salt to taste
Drizzle half of this mixture over the potatoes .  Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.  Take baking sheet out of the oven.  Flip chicken pieces over and add the asparagus or green beans to the pan.  Drizzle potatoes and veggies with the remaining butter.  Bake an additional 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is done and the potatoes are tender.
