SHOW US HOW YOUR LIFE - Dinner Recipes

(I'm sorry if I messed anyone up - I had to move the schedule out a week because of my vacation last week - I've updated the schedule here)

I'm excited about this blog tour because I am in a DINNER rut. I haven't updated my recipe blog in ages because for the last couple of months I have basically rotated about 3-4 things every night for dinner. It's pitiful. So I can't wait to get ideas.

This is our dinner at least two nights a week. It's easy and fairly healthy.

6 tablespoons olive oil
2 lemons, 1 thinly sliced, 1 juiced
4 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
3/4 lb green beans
8 small red potatoes, quartered
4 chicken breasts

Preheat oven to 450. Coat a large baking dish with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Arrange lemon slices from 1 lemon in a single layer on the bottom of the dish. In large bowl combine remaining olive oil, lemon juice of 2nd lemon, garlic, salt and pepper. Add green beans and toss to coat. Using tongs, remove green beans and arrange them on top of lemon slices. Add potatoes to same olive oil mixture and coat. Arrange on inside edge of dish on top of the beans. (I think it’s so pretty!) I also add a lemon pepper mixture on top of everything. It adds a lot of flavor.Place chicken in olive oil mixture and coat. Place chicken in dish. Roast for 40-50 minutes. Remove chicken and continue roasting potatoes/beans if necessary.

I use canned cut green beans because I love canned beans. Put I'm sure fresh or frozen would be just as good!
