Crisp lemon chicken roasts in the oven while a colorful vegetable hash finishes on the stovetop in this hearty meal.

  1. Marinate chicken - Chop garlic. Combine garlic and lemon juice in a zip-top bag or baking dish. Add chicken and toss to coat in marinade. Marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.
  2. Brussels sprouts / Shallots / Lemons - Prep as directed. Combine brussels sprouts and shallots. Store lemon slices separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Prep breading - Combine almond flour, paprika, thyme, and salt in a zip-top bag or bowl. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)


  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and toss in breading.
  3. Heat an oven-safe skillet with oil (portion for chicken) over medium heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and cook on one side until skin is crisp, ~8 minutes.
  4. When chicken skin is crisp, turn chicken so the skin is facing up. Top each piece of chicken with a lemon slice.
  5. Transfer skillet with chicken to the oven and roast until it reaches 165F / 74C, ~ 20 minutes.
  6. While chicken is roasting, heat a second skillet or wok with oil (portion for hash) over medium-high heat. Add brussels sprouts and shallots and saute until sprouts turn bright green. Add water with a pinch of salt and cover with a lid. Steam until brussels sprouts are tender, 5 to 6 minutes.
  7. Remove lid from brussels sprouts and add in leftover sweet potatoes and vinegar. Saute everything together until vinegar is absorbed and vegetables are golden brown in spots.
  8. Season hash with some salt and pepper.
  9. Serve chicken with hash on the side. Enjoy!

Definitely read through the recipe first because it’s a lot going on at the same time. Risotto turned out really well. The flavor of the chicken was great, I just don’t love bone-in chicken. Might try a different cut of chicken next time, but definitely will do again.

The lemon/brown sugar flavor of the chicken was a huge hit.

The chicken was absolutely delicious. I added a touch of maple syrup to the brussels sprouts for some sweetness which I think did well.
