Easy on the budget - delicious meal of chicken thighs and potatoes
- 4 boneless chicken thighs
- 1 small red onion, peeled and chopped
- 8 large red potatoes, quartered
- 1 pint cherry (or grape tomatoes)
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
- 2 medium lemons, sliced
- salt and black pepper, to taste
- Sprigs of fresh parsley and rosemary for garnish (optional)
Pre-heat the oven to 400°F and spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
Combine red onion, potatoes, and tomatoes in a large glass bowl and sprinkle with the dried herbs. Drizzle with two tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Toss to coat and spread into a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.
Add the chicken thighs to the bowl and drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired, and turn to coat. Nestle chicken thighs in between the veggies on the baking sheet and top each with one or two lemon slices. Scatter the remaining lemon slices amongst the veggies on the baking sheet.
Place baking sheet in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and turn the veggies. Return to oven to roast for another 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
Remove from oven and let chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs, if using, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
Food Safety Tip: The safe cooking temperature for chicken is 165°F. Use an instant-read thermometer to test for doneness. Remove from oven when internal temperature at the thickest part reaches at least 160°F. The temperature will continue to rise several degrees while the chicken rests.
