Greek Chicken Thighs & Vegetables

Simple roasted lemon chicken thighs with potatoes and green beans. Chicken thighs are my favorite and so much more flavorful and juice than regular chicken breast. I also recommend chicken thighs for new baby eaters; they are easier to chew and less dry. Temple (11 months) loved this dish just as much as we did!

  4. Line two baking sheets or dishes with parchment paper.
  5. Place the chicken thighs on one of the baking sheets. Evenly distribute the roasted potatoes on the other baking sheet.
  6. Place both the chicken thighs and potatoes in the oven. Roast the chicken thighs for 40-50 minutes or until cooked through.
  7. Roast the potatoes for 30 minutes (flip halfway)
  8. While the chicken and potatoes are roasting, place your green beans in a bowl. Toss in a little olive oil (about 1 tbsp.) Place on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. (I roasted mine after I took the potatoes out and the chicken was still finishing.)
  9. Combine all three on a plate and serve with a wedge of lemon. ENJOY!
