A delicious one-pan dinner that tastes like you cooked all day but only takes a small amount of hands-on time. Great flavor and easy clean-up! We make extra sprouts, my family loves them.

Directions

  • Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly browned but still soft, about 5 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  • Coat a large baking dish or cast iron skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

  • Arrange lemon slices in a single layer on the bottom of the baking dish.

  • Stir remaining 5 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, kosher salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl.

  • Toss Brussels sprouts in lemon juice mixture to coat; transfer to the prepared baking dish with a slotted spoon, draining excess liquid back into the bowl.

  • Place bacon on top of the Brussels sprouts.

  • Toss potatoes in the same lemon juice mixture used for the Brussels sprouts.

  • Remove potatoes with slotted spoon and arrange along the inside edge of the baking dish.

  • Coat chicken breast halves thoroughly in the remaining lemon mixture.

  • Place chicken breasts skin-side up in the skillet; pour any remaining lemon juice mixture over chicken.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

This was good! My husband loved it. Though I must admit that I really braised the chicken brussel sprouts and potatoes instead of pan roasting. After cooking the bacon I browned the chicken breasts in the bacon drippings. Then I added about a tablespoon of olive oil to the pan to saute the garlic and added the brussel sprouts potatoes lemon juice and salt and pepper. Then I added a little chicken broth and returned the chicken to the pan. I covered it and put it in the oven to cook at 350 for about 40 minutes and it was perfect. Maybe next time I'll actually pan roast it with the lemon slices. I'm sure it is excellent. Thank you LAMBR for sharing this recipe. Read More

I followed the recipe to a T and the lemon pith in the bottom of the pan ended up giving them a very bitter taste. And my potatoes didn't cook at that high of a temp ended up dropping it down to 350 & covering it to finally get them done. I also had to make a 2nd batch of the lemon garlic sauce to get everything coated well. It smelled absolutely wonderful cooking though! I will try it again because it's a great combination of ingredients but I will not put the lemon on the bottom as called for. Maybe I'll do like the other reviewers said & just cook everything in the pan together. Read More

Hi this is my recipe and I would use at least a pound of sprouts not a 1/2 pound. My sons tell me I never cook enough of the sprouts. Read More

I am giving this recipe 5 stars because my whole family loved it and ate it up without complaining! But I must admit I had no bacon so I skipped that step and also used drumsticks instead of breasts. I knew that the drumsticks would cook fast so I baked at 375 C and cut my potatoes into eighths instead of quarters. Turned out great! Read More

I only made one little change. I used the bacon drippings as part replacement of the olive oil and decreased totla dripping/ olive oil to 3 tablessppons. This is the perfect dish I was looking for all in one pan. I use my cast iron skillet to cook bacon and then used the sam skillet to complete the dish. Thanks (I too increased the amout of Brussel sprouts Read More

I loved this recipe; we love all the ingredients so it made sense that the dish turned out as expected. One change for next time: omit the sliced lemons on the bottom. The lemon slices cooked down and it would be overwhelming to get a piece of the cooked rind in a mouthful; that's the only change I will make. Otherwise a really great recipe! Read More

like the concept but my little tweak was that i like my vegetables separate from the rest. stuck to the exact ingredients for the b.s. (but in it's own pan). really liked the sauce but gave it minced garlic rosemary and parsley for the chicken & potatoes for just that extra ummph. was totally delicious Read More
