Lemon Garlic Chicken Bake

Howdy Friends!

How are you guys doing? I am doing mighty fine, thank you!
So...I kinda forgot that I am a food blogger. My bad.
No worries though, I have a recipe today!
We ate this for dinner last week (see I am always late on posting my recipes) & we really liked it. The nice combo of the lemon and garlic was super tasty. MMM.

Here is what you will need:

  • a whole chicken, butchered. OR you can use 4 chicken breasts, or thighs. Pretty much use whatever chicken you want. ;)
  • 4 potatoes, cut up into bite size pieces
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 5 cloves of garlic (I actually used 4 minced and I put a few extra cloves in whole. BECAUSE I LOVE GARLIC)
  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • 5 tbsps lemon juice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • Assorted veggies. I used some green beans and carrots from a frozen bag. I recommend it.
Put the chicken, potatoes,onions and veggies into your baking dish.
Look at how cute this thing is! Dan got me this little owl for Christmas. 

Mix the oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and garlic powder together into a little bowl.
Now pour the mixture over the chicken and veggies.

Bake at 450F for 50 minutes. When that is done take the chicken out and bake the veggies and potatoes for another 10-15 minutes so they will be nice and soft! 


Here are some pics of my life as of lately!
We had our youth group over for a fondue dinner & a games night 2 weeks ago! It was so much fun. These kids have a lot of energy ;)

Today I had a lovely day with my friend Marylene. We ate chocolate, drank coffee (of course) and we did pedicures!
I am about to go to a job interview! So wish me luck (or blessings)!
Have a great night friends!

Hello HELLO!

Well here I am, almost a month after my trip with PART DEUX! I hope you are all doing well on this snowy Thursday afternoon. least it's snowy in my neck of the woods. I don't know why everyone is complaining so much about the snow. It's not even officially spring yet guys! I personally like it ;) But I guess I also didn't suffer this winter as much as the rest of you because I was in CALIFORNIA! haha

While in San Diego we spent a day at the World Famous San Diego Zoo!
It was pretty much one of my fav things about San Diego! I loved it! I saw so many animals that I had never seen before & animals that I didn't even realize exist!

Me at the petting zoo. I want a goat so bad.

Dan and jumbo turtles! 
Dan wanted to bring a turtle home! He was like "imagine our children riding the giant turtle in the backyard! how fun would that be?" 
hahaha yeah right!
Those pink things in the back are flamingos!
This gorilla was just lounging in the sun! So adorbs.
Mr. Giraffe Man.
I don't even know what he is, but he's cute! Like a little chubby deer.
I loved this guy.
Then we went to see a 4D Ice Age movie!
I just wanted to snuggle him. But I am sure he wouldn't have liked that.

Another day, Dan and I went on a tour of the USS Midway Cold War Aircraft carrier.
Dan was so happy that whole entire day. :)
Camo F18
Love him.

That concludes the pictures of our trip. I mean.. I have probably 50 selfies that I could share with you, but that would be awkward. ;)
I hope you all have a fab rest of your day!
