Lemon Herb Chicken

A few simple ingredients and so full of flavour!


You can’t have too many roasted chicken recipes! This one is so perfect as a quick weekday meal or a house full of guests – 

Made from simple ingredients you likely have in the house – the flavours blend together so nicely. I always keep chicken thighs in the freezer for quick meals. They are an affordable protein option, cook quickly and are so tender and juicy!

4. Once skillet is hot, sear chicken thighs, cooking 2-3 minutes each side. Transfer the seared chicken into a baking dish

5. Pour the lemon butter sauce over the chicken. Add in a few extra sprigs of rosemary and lemon slices for extra flavour!
