Parmesan and Garlic Lemon Chicken and Veggies
Parmesan and Garlic-Lemon Marinated Chicken, Potatoes, and Veggies
4 chicken breasts
1 red onion
1 Tb. garlic
2 Tb. pesto (homemade or I prefer the store-bought Classico jar)
1/4 c. lemon juice
5-6 tablespoons olive oil
2 Tb. fresh basil
1/2 Tb. dried oregano
Grated Parmesan cheese for sprinkling on top. You decide the amount!
1.) Slice zucchini, squash, and onions and put in 9 by 13 casserole pan. Also, dice potatoes and put in pan as well.
2.) Mix veggies, onion, and potatoes by hand in the casserole pan.
3.) Lay chicken breasts on top of the veggie/onion/potato mixture.
4.) Combine garlic, pesto, lemon juice, olive oil, basil, and oregano in food processor. Combine until well pureed.
5.) Pour marinade over the chicken and veggies. Try to spread this marinade as evenly as possible.
6.) Sprinkle the top of the chicken/veggies/onion/potatoes with grated parmesan cheese. I used around 2 or 3 tablespoons.
7.) Bake at 400 degrees for about 30-40 minutes. Check chicken and potatoes for tenderness after about 30 minutes.
