  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 12 oz fresh green beans cut into halves or thirds
  • 12 oz baby dutch yellow potatoes cut into...
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • Optional: fresh chopped herbs for garnish (I like basil or rosemary for this recipe.)


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Cut your green beans into halves or thirds if they're especially long. Spread on baking sheet.
  • Cut your potatoes in half lengthwise. Then slice each half into thirds so you're creating half circle shapes. Spread on baking sheet with green beans.
  • In a small bowl stir together olive oil, 3 tbsp lemon juice (save the extra 1 tbsp for later), onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and dried basil. Pour mixture over the chicken, green beans, and potatoes on the baking sheet. Stir so everything is coated and then spread out all ingredients in a single layer. 
  • Bake for 20 - 25 minutes. (20 is perfect for my oven.) Chicken will be cooked through (but white) and potatoes will be softened. You can serve as is but if you'd like to get a bit of browning on everything carefully move the oven rack up to the top. Turn the broiler on high. Broil for about 2 minutes (check it so you don't burn anything).
  • Remove pan from oven. Drizzle remaining 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Optional: top with any chopped fresh herbs you have. (I like rosemary or basil here.) Serve!


I use a 12 x 17 baking sheet for all my sheet pan recipes. This accommodates a lot of food without overcrowding. If your baking sheet is smaller, use two instead of one. (Don't overcrowd.)
If you don't have baby dutch yellow potatoes you can use regular yellow or gold potatoes. Just make sure you're cutting them down to the appropriate size. If they're too large or too small they'll be under done or over done.
