Recently, I purchased a new cookbook “One Pot: From the Kitchen of Martha Stewart Living.” As the name suggested, the cookbook is all about one pot recipes using skillet, pan, slow cooker, stockpot, etc..
I was prompted to buy this cookbook to learn new recipes and to cut down the amount of time we spend standing in the kitchen, cleaning endless piles of pots and pans.
Even though we use the dishwasher to do the cleaning, still, there are a lot of rinsing and cleaning before the pots and pans get into the dishwasher, well, I am sure you know the drill.
I bookmarked a few recipes to try, and will share them with you one by one. The first dish s this lemon-garlic braised chicken and potatoes.
This recipe caught my eyes because they have all the ingredients that my 4-year old picky eater would eat. Nowadays, everything I cook have to pass the “will my picky eater eat it?” test.
The recipe is really quite simple, first, you pan-fried the chicken until golden brown on the surface, then you placed all the other ingredients of lemon, garlic, potatoes, etc., and finish the cooking in the oven.
There is only one pan involved and there is not a lot of cleaning to do as the oven does the job mostly.
We really enjoyed this easy and delicious lemon-garlic braised chicken and potato recipe. The chicken is moist and tender, the potatoes are well cooked, and the sauce is garlicky, lemony, savory, with a hint of Mediterranean flavor.
We serve the dish with some plain spaghetti and have a complete meal.
