Rosemary and Lemon Chicken #Recipe @PegCochran

This is one of those easy yet tasty and delicious one-pan dinners.  I found making it on a cookie sheet worked perfectly.  This is also open to interpretation--don't like rosemary?  Use thyme instead.  Don't want to use chicken thighs?  Go with breasts.  Lots of room for improvisation depending on what your family likes and what's in your pantry and refrigerator.


Chicken pieces--about four pieces but you can increase as needed
1 onion cut into wedges
4 red potatoes quartered or cut in eighths if large
1 lemon sliced
1 - 2 tsps. minced garlic (depending on how much you like garlic)
4 sprigs fresh rosemary (or less if they are huge--mine were like tree branches!)
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Combine onion, lemon, garlic, rosemary and olive oil in a bowl.  Add chicken and potatoes wedges and toss well to coat.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Spread out on cookie sheet and cook until potatoes are done and chicken reaches 165 degrees.

Slice lemons

Quarter onion

Spread on cookie sheet

Bake at 450 degrees


The county fair is the highlight of the year for the small town of Lovett, Michigan—especially for food-and-lifestyle blogger Shelby McDonald, who writes as the Farmer’s Daughter. She’s submitting jams and jellies she’s created from the produce she grows at Love Blossom Farm in hopes of harvesting a blue ribbon.

But the townspeople get more than just the excitement of hayrides, tractor pulls, and cotton candy when Shelby’s neighbor and volunteer fireman, Jake Taylor, extricates the body of Zeke Barnstable instead of a dummy during a demonstration of the Jaws of Life. The fact that Jake and Zeke were known to be at odds plants suspicion in the minds of the police. As evidence against Jake grows, Shelby knows she has to plow through the clues to weed out the true killer and save her friend.
