Garlic Lemon Chicken

Looking for an easy weeknight meal that's sure to please the whole family? You'll love our garlic lemon chicken recipe that packs a punch of bright, lemony flavor and won't make a mess of your kitchen. Chicken thighs, potatoes and vegetables are seasoned with McCormick® herbs and finished with a bright burst of lemon zest. One-pan chicken recipes are ideal for busy weeknights — they offer great customization, easy cleanup and the convenience of putting together a complete meal all on one pan! Serve a nice crusty bread to soak up all the pan juices, or mix the juices with some flour and stock to create a creamy sauce to drizzle over the chicken, like in our Garlic and Herb Lemon Chicken recipe. This sheet pan garlic lemon chicken features roasted chicken thighs for a budget-friendly dinner that also makes for excellent leftover chicken recipes. Shred the leftover chicken to make a chicken sandwich, round out a grain bowl, simmer into a pot of soup or bulk up a simple green salad.
