Crispy chicken and vegetables with parmesan, lemon and garlic is a complete dinner with potatoes and green beans smothered in a garlic butter sauce!

Ingredients:

For The Chicken:
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (or juice of 1/2 a lemon)
  • 4 skinless , boneless chicken breasts (or thighs)
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper , to season
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/3 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg

For The Veggies:
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup butter , melted
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound 500 g green beans , cut into thirds
  • 8-10(1pound500g) baby potatoes, quartered


Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C | 400°F. Lightly grease a baking tray / sheet with cooking oil spray, or a light coating of oil. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, lemon juice, 2 teaspoons garlic, parsley, salt and pepper.
  3. Dip chicken into egg mixture, cover and allow to marinade in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour (if time allows).*
  4. In another bowl, combine the breadcrumbs with the parmesan cheese.
  5. Dredge the egg coated chicken in the breadcrumb/parmesan mixture, lightly pressing to evenly coat.
  6. Place chicken onto the baking sheet / tray and lightly spray with cooking oil spray. Arrange the potatoes around the chicken in a single layer. Mix together the butter, 2 teaspoons garlic and salt to taste, and pour half of the butter mixture over the potatoes. Toss to evenly coat.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  8. Remove baking tray from the oven and carefully flip each chicken breast. Move the potatoes to one side and place the green beans around the chicken on the other side of the baking sheet. Pour over the remaining garlic butter and return to the oven to broil (or grill) on medium-high heat for a further 10 minutes, or until chicken is golden and crisp, and potatoes are cooked through.
  9. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley (optional), and serve immediately. Enjoy your dinner!
