Lemon Garlic Chicken – Dinner in 30 Minutes

One pan lemon garlic chicken is delightful and incredibly delicious. When if first made this dish, I was looking in my pantry wondering what to have for dinner. I only had a few ingredients but thought this might be great. The outcome was fantastic.

As with every recipe, there are a few ways to alter it. First, it is a dish with a lot of garlic. You can reduce it or add more, but garlic is one of the key components. The same applies to the lemon.

The paprika adds some wonderful flavor and color. As with the garlic, add as much or as little as you like. Smoked paprika creates a great flavor too.

Feel free to add additional ingredients if you wish. Create the recipe as is, or tamper with it, and let us know what you think.
