Easy Weeknight Recipe - Chicken Dinner

I was so pumped when I bought the chicken for this recipe. 3 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts cost me only $3.18 at the grocery store on Sunday. Totally crazy if you ask me! I guess I'm used to paying for the de-boned, de-skinned chicken that I never realized I could save money just by doing it myself. I'm going to start paying more attention to the different prices in chicken now, gotta save money wherever we can!

Anyway, this recipe does require a little forethought. So FYI, you'll want to start marinading the chicken in Greek dressing before you head off to work in the morning. Otherwise, this is incredibly easy. The hardest part is waiting 50 minutes for it to cook in the oven :)

Roasted Greek Chicken with Vegetables


  • Greek Dressing to cover Chicken (this is my all-time favorite
  • 3 Chicken Breasts (bone-in, skin-on, about 3 pounds!)
  • 6 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon (thinly sliced)
  • 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 8 Red Baking Potatoes, Quartered
  • 1/2 pound Greek Beans, Trimmed


  • Marinate chicken in Greek Dressing for at least 1 hour (the longer you marinate it the more flavor though!)
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 
  • Coat a large glass baking dish with 1 tsp olive oil. Layer the lemon slices on the bottom.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, pepper and salt. Add Red Potatoes and cover with mixture. Remove potatoes with tongs so that there is some olive oil mixture in the bowl still. Place the potatoes around the outside of the baking dish on top of the lemon slices.
  • Add Green Beans and lay them in the center of the baking dish. 
  • Finally, lay the chicken on top of the vegetables. 
  • Roast the chicken for 50 minutes. 
  • Remove the chicken and return the beans and potatoes to the oven for an additional 10 minutes (they need more time to get soft). 
  • Split into 4 equal servings and enjoy!
