lemon roasted chicken onions, seasoning, and lemon

What a lovely and easy to make family meal idea!

Feel free to use both chicken breasts and thighs if desired. You can also serve with additional roasted veggies. I paired this chicken with some roasted Brussels sprouts and a big salad. Such an easy and flavorful meal! Enjoy.


Make these roasted Brussels sprouts!
