Aunt Pat’s Chicken: The Perfect Meal for Easy Entertaining

3 Apr

This easy and sure-to-please chicken dish is a modified twist on a recipe that my Aunt Pat shared with me several years ago. It’s a delicious, healthy, and inexpensive meal that is simply perfect for entertaining.

The best part about this dish is that you get to mingle with your guests while it bakes in the oven.

My Aunt Pat's Chicken Dish never disappoints!

The recipe as written is intended to serve 4 adults, so adjust the quantities and cookware to make larger portions if needed.


–4 split chicken breasts, leg quarters, or a whole cut-up broiler. Use bone-in chicken with the skin on. It’s easily removed after cooking and makes a huge difference in both the flavor and moisture level of the dish.

–5 to 7 medium red potatoes

–½ lb. of carrots (I typically buy a bag of peeled, cut baby carrots)

–1 whole onion

–5-7 cloves of garlic, peeled but not cut (use less if you’re not a big garlic fan – we love garlic Around My Home)

–1-2 lemons (depending on how much lemon you like)

Optional: 3-4 Fresh Rosemary twigs (I typically omit the Rosemary)

–Salt & Pepper to taste

–Extra Virgin Olive oil (drizzled)

–Couple of small pats of butter
