Lemon chicken with veggies

This is an easy, go-to, Thursday night meal at our house.  I've modified it from the book "mom-a-licious" by Domenica Catelli (a pretty good one).  You don't have to add an additional side dish. It's a one dish meal.  Enjoy!

1 pound chicken tenders (or boneless, skinless breast cut into 1 inch strips)
2-3 Tbsp minced garlic
2-3 cups vegetables of you choice, cut into small bite sized pieces (sweet potatoes, celery, carrots, broccoli, etc. - we usually use sweet potato and broccoli)
2 Tbsp EVOO
1 lemon, juiced
2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
pinch salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place chicken, garlic and veggies in a 9X13 baking dish.  (I like to steam the veggies for a few minutes in the microwave before I add them to the dish.)
Drizzle with lemon juice and EVOO.  Mix in the salt and pepper.
Top with the Parmesan cheese and bake 20-25 minutes.
Serve and Enjoy!

I think I've had something similar minus the veggies! I would have never thought about adding veggies to it!

Dion this sounds so yummy! I have been salivating since I read the recipe! :) We are BIG lemon and garlic fans!

This does sound really good. I'm thinking it would be great as a side to some homemade french bread with garlic and butter...
Oh, wait...I meant with a side of french bread with garlic and butter!

:o) I love bread--can you tell?

I finally made this for dinner tonight. I used sweet potatoes, yellow squash and zucchini. We loved it! Will definitely be making this again!
