Lemon Rosemary Chicken

This dish is super easy to throw together. Just brown the chicken for 5 minutes and then you get to throw it in the oven and forget about it! (Just make sure it's a cast iron skillet!). I love how healthy it is too, but flavorful enough that the kids love it!

Lemon Rosemary Chicken
recipe from

1/4 cup olive oil
4 chicken breasts
1 1/2 sweet potatoes, cubed
1 large lemon, squeezed
1 large lemon, sliced
2 Tablespoons rosemary
5 garlic cloves, crushed
Salt and pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Add olive oil to a large cast iron skillet, and heat over medium-high heat. Sprinkle desired amount of salt and pepper over chicken breasts then place the chicken breast sides down in the pan. Add the cubed sweet potatoes, and cook in pan/skillet for 4-5 minutes or until the chicken is browned. Turn the chicken over and pour lemon, rosemary, and garlic over the chicken and potatoes. Top with sliced lemons. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the chicken is done. This varies for each oven.
