This is one of our favorite stand-by recipes. It is so easy to throw together and really good. It is also one of those recipes that it is easy to remember what you need, in case you are out and about when you are trying to figure out what to do for dinner.

Chicken and Veggies
Adapted from Elly Says Opa.


3-4 Chicken breasts (or whatever type of chicken you fancy)
4-5 potatoes (Depends on how big they are)
2-3 carrots
1 onion
extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can chicken broth


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Peel and chop up potatoes and carrots into large pieces.
  3. Cut up onion into larger chuncks.
  4. Add some extra virgin olive oil and the juice of half a lemon to a baking dish.
  5. Add chicken, potatoes, carrots, and onion to the baking dish, and turn them around so that they are coated with the olive oil and lemon juice.
  6. Add salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic to the chicken and veggies.
  7. Flip the chicken and mix the veggies, then salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic the other sides.
  8. Add chicken broth to the pan, and squeeze the remaining half-lemon over the chicken and veggies.
  9. Bake at 400 for about an hour, basting the chicken and vegetables as necessary. Note: The onions tend to brown on top, so keep an eye on those.
  10. Serve and enjoy!

So easy and so good. We usually serve this with a simple salad.
