Easy Lemon Chicken

Recipe Courtesy of Annabelle White


We caught up with the ‘Cuddly Cook’ Annabelle White at the Farmlands pavilion at Field Days last year. She gave us this delicious Lemon Chicken recipe which is sure to become an instant favourite. 


Serves 4


This recipe is super simple and of course you can add other vegetables to the pan – but the herbs, garlic, oil and lemon juice is a fantastic combination. If you have fresh rosemary in the garden – add to the dish as well.


You can switch out the chicken breast to more affordable chicken drum sticks – but cooking with the bone in may take longer, but after the first time making it and checking the cooking progress you will know what to do! When cooking chicken, the juices should run clear when piercing the skin and meat to check progress.



4 single chicken breasts

2 large potatoes, diced

Salt and pepper

1/4 - 1/3 cup vegetable oil

2 Tbsp lemon juice

2 tsp minced garlic

1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning



  • Preheat oven to 180°C. 
  • Arrange chicken in a single layer in a shallow pan. 
  • Arrange potatoes in same pan. 
  • Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. 
  • Combine vegetable oil, lemon juice, garlic and seasoning together and brush onto chicken and potatoes. 
  • Bake at 180°C for 50-55 minutes or until chicken is done and potatoes are tender when tested with a fork. 
  • Serve with a salad and steamed green beans. 


You could serve this family favourite with herbed bread. Make your favourite garlic butter as per normal – crushing garlic and mixing with softened butter and adding some freshly chopped green herbs like finely chopped parsley, basil, oregano etc. Smear over the bread slices and wrap in tin foil and cook until warmed through and the butter has melted completely.
