Dinner Last Night: Garlic Lemon Chicken with Potatoes and Green Beans

A repeat offender over here, pan roasted chicken with lemon garlic potatoes and green beans. This is one of my go-to recipes for meal deliveries, for a few reasons...
1. It's dairy and gluten free - ideal to accomodate food allergies
2. It's quick, fairly easy and simple to assemble 
3. Everything is in one pot, so easy for transportation and cooking for the receiver

 I made this Monday night for a friend and colleague who just had her second baby in early October.  Since we're still in the market for fast and convenient meals at our house, I doubled the marinade for the recipe and made us a little batch as well.  

Some notes for future cooking: the recipe calls for 50 minutes of roasting the chicken, which in my opinion is a bit too long, as breasts dry out quickly. I'd recommend either using thighs, or pulling the chicken out a few minutes earlier.  Others suggested cutting up the potatoes slightly smaller to ensure faster cooking or perhaps adding onions caramelized could definitely add to the flavor palette.  Also, note, this is definitely a lemony dish (which I personally love).  The lemons kind of caramelize in the bottom of the pan (since there's a layer of sliced lemons beneath the veggies and chicken), so if you're not a fan of lemon, I suggest you pass or substitute.
