One-Pan Lemon Garlic Chicken with Veggies


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 pound baby potatoes, halved
  • 2 cups baby carrots
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Set your oven to 400°F (200°C). While it's heating up, take a moment to appreciate the fact that dinner is about to become a breeze.
  2. Prep the Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, toss the halved potatoes and baby carrots with olive oil, minced garlic, thyme, paprika, salt, and pepper. Make sure they're well-coated – they're about to get all flavorful.
  3. One-Pan Magic:
    • Place the marinated veggies on a baking sheet, creating a space in the center for the chicken breasts. Lay the chicken breasts in that cozy spot.
  4. Lemon Love:
    • Lay lemon slices over the chicken breasts. Squeeze a bit of lemon juice over everything because, well, why not?
  5. Bake Away:
    • Pop the pan in the preheated oven. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the veggies are golden and tender.
  6. Garnish and Serve:
    • Sprinkle some fresh parsley on top for that gourmet touch. Serve directly from the pan because we're all about minimizing dishes.
