chicken with lemon and potatoes

Your simple chicken dish. This was something I made when in a rush and didn’t know what else to cook. I had a package of chicken thighs in the fridge and a bag of red potatoes. My one pot wonder was brought to life with chicken broth and lemon juice. I was so proud of how this turned out, mainly because it took so little effort.

I noticed that this dish has the tendency to lack salt, so I made sure to add my fair share of sea salt and or I spruced everything up with the right amount of herbs and spices (optional). I put a lemon wedge on the plate so that any extra zest that was needed could be added at will. The rest is history.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!

καλή όρεξη! (enjoy your meal!)
