Chicken and veggies

I adapted this from a Weight Watchers recipe (time to start eating a little healthier now that the holidays are over.)  The recipe called for cooking the chicken for about 30 minutes but ours was nowhere near done after 30 minutes.  Next time, I’ll start it earlier and I may try cutting the breasts in half.

Chicken and veggies

  • 1 bone in chicken breast per person
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 TB chopped thyme
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 small red potatoes sliced
  • 3 shallots, sliced
  • 6 additional cloves of garlic, sliced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 thin slices lemon

Combine 2 cloves of garlic with thyme and salt.  Stuff under skin of chicken breasts.  Toss potatoes, shallots and sliced garlic with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Put chicken at one end of a ceramic baking dish and potato mixture at the other.  Place lemon slices on top of chicken and bake at 375 for 45 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 140.  Broil for 2 minutes to brown and serve.  I had mine with an arugula salad topped with Parmesan crackers.
