Our family loves chicken. Or maybe I should say, I love chicken so thus I feed my family large amounts of it. With that being the case, I’m always looking for a way to shake things up so that we avoid the dreaded chicken burnout. New ingredients and unexpected flavor combinations are always an easy way to make that happen. This Chicken with Roasted Lemons and Green Olives happens to have both!
Isn’t it pretty? Sure it looks high class, but it couldn’t be easier to pull together. Clean up is pretty minimal as well. In no time you’ll have a super flavorful and easy dinner on the table. Entertaining? This dish is a great main course option for guests as well! You won’t even have to tell anyone just how easy it was to make.
Bright slices of sunshine yellow lemon are roasted to bring a bit of sweetness to their typically tongue puckering taste. And the olives? These aren’t the tart Spanish olives that you’re likely accustomed to. These green California olives are smooth and almost buttery. A little salty, a bit nutty and the perfect compliment to the lemon. Resist the urge to keep plucking them out of the pan as you’re cooking. I dare you!
Wake up your weekly menu with this Chicken with Roasted Lemons and Olives dish. One that will awaken your taste buds and leave you marveling at the dynamic duo of lemons and olives. I know I for one wouldn’t have originally thought to pair the two together, but they really do work! And for some reason, my children can’t resist the urge to eat slice after slice of roasted lemon.
