Roasted Lemon Rosemary Chicken and Red Potatoes

Good Morning! I hope you guys are having a great week so far!

Today I am bringing you a quick, easy and flavorful dinner. Roasted Lemon Rosemary Chicken and Red Potatoes.  The answer to my crazy weeknight slacking!

Why the slacking? I blame it on my new commute. Do you commute to work?

If you do then you can agree with me that it is no fun! Up until this week I had a 15 minute commute down to the exact minute.  I took side roads to work and in Chicago that is a blessing.  The highways can be a complete mess, especially during rush hour.  You can imagine how upset I was when I learned that my company was moving and that my commute would now be 45 minutes on the highway…and that is a traffic free day.

Needless to say I have been working on ways to cut down time on things like cleaning, laundry and cooking during the week. Cooking is one of my favorite things to do and it is hard for me to give it up.  I have been trying to make simple recipes during the week that don’t take a lot of time.  Let’s be honest..the last thing I want to do after a long day of work and 2 hours of commuting is cook something complicated.

Roasted Lemon Rosemary Chicken and Red Potatoes is easy to prepare and roasts in the oven while you go about your night. It took me less than10 minutes to prepare and you can even cut the potatoes the night before to save time.

This looks yummm, I have some chicken quarters in the fridge to make tonight, I may try it with those instead of the chicken breasts. Thank you for the inspiration!

Sorry about the long commute. I go from the bedroom to the office and sometimes that's a long way.

I love, love, love your chicken. All my favorites are in there.

One-pot meals is a must and this recipe is classic and looks delicious! Wow: traffic free day? Is that possible? We were just in Chicago and that traffic is gnarly! I give you props for commuting and still cooking!

Thanks Sarah! Chicago traffic is ridiculous. There are days I question why I live here and deal with it! But Chicago does have a lot to offer. Hopefully I can keep up the energy to keep cooking!
