Easy Meals: Lemon Caper Chicken

In developing, this recipe, I was aiming for a result that was both easy to make, and healthy. The finished dish is just that; requiring a minimal amount of ingredients, this Lemon Caper Chicken recipe has the easy capability of serving a large family, while also being a practical solution to the need for a low grocery bill.

The Chicken marinates for a few hours in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, and lemon zest (make your life easier and zest the lemons before juicing them), before being baked in a large baking dish.

To cook efficiently, prepare the potatoes while the chicken is marinating, then place both the chicken and the potatoes in the oven to bake, the potatoes on the lower rack, and the chicken on the middle rack. The potatoes should take a little longer in the oven, so be mindful of the different cooking times for each dish.

Another reasonable ingredient-saver is the final sauce to garnish the dish with – the juices from the baking dish – all the chicken juices with all the marinade that it was baking in. These juices will be poured into a saucepan once the chicken has been baked, and some flour will be added to thicken the mix up.
