For weeks now I have seen this recipe shared on Facebook and finally I decided to make it.  This is my version of this delicious chicken and I made it with 5 chicken breasts so I could share some with a friend who was coming home from  the hospital.  You might like to try it too!  Add some delicious bread and there you have it - a nice meal.

Today is "Open House" which is a time to link something about your home such as cooking, baking, sewing, garden, crafts, travel,  DIY, thrifting, antiquing and the list of home related things go on and go.

Here is what you will need for the baked chicken dish:
4-5 chicken breasts either with or without bones and skin, 6-8 Tb olive oil, 2 lemons, 1 thinly sliced and 1 zested and juiced, 4 clove garlic that are minced, 1 tsp salt, 1 Tb rosemary,  1/2 tsp ground pepper, 3/4 pound trimmed fresh green beans, 10 small red potatoes quartered, small chopped onion

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Coat the bottom of a pyrex casserole with 1 Tb olive oil.  In a large bowl combine remaining oil and spices and onion.  Coat the chicken first adding the green beans and potatoes stirring through.  Remove green beans with tongs and lay in bottom of a 9" x 13" pyrex, then potatoes and then chicken and coat the top with remaining olive oil mixture.

Bake covered with foil for 1 hour, uncover and bake another 15 minutes - check to make sure all cooked through.

I would also like to feature 4 posts from
 other blogs

That sure looks good! I love the placemats and chair pads too. I would like to make the chair pads but hubby doesn't think their thick enough. Boo-hoo. Nancy
